From the article:
"A state not permitting free trade, prohibiting open travel and not holding talks is isolationism. Do proponents of non-intervention suggest this? No, but those who are not intellectually inclined do not want to comprehend this for some unknown reason.

Because of their foreign policy since World War II. Why is there hostility between Russia and Poland? Because the former Soviet Union occupied Poland following World War II. Why does much of the world hold animosity towards Great Britain? Because of colonialism.
Non-intervention promotes the ideas of not looking for dragons to slay every few years and to allow free trade, travel and talks between countries. Non-intervention, indeed, is the foreign policy of freedom and peace."
Beautiful, but where were these writers when Everyone was calling him an isolationist? A little too late.
