Will’s Take: U.S. Should Beware of ‘Narcissistic Policy Disorder’

While this week brought forth a number of international incidents, George Will encouraged the United States to be wary of thinking it is the cause and the solution to each of these issues. He noted that there is not “not a single global crisis” at the moment, but that the current issues are “a lot of regional conflicts and other local conflicts.”

“We must beware at an occasion like this of what’s been called ‘narcissistic policy disorder,’” Will said on Fox News Sunday. “That is the belief that everything in the world is about us: Either we did or said something, or didn’t do or didn’t say something, and if we did something or said something, it would all be well. We can’t do that now.”
