Neoconservatism: Past and Future

By Damon Linker

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), April 2008

Linker describes the increase in neoconservative political influence after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Neoconservatives believed that wars would be good for the U.S. both domestically and internationally, where the world badly needed American leadership to enforce order and punish injustice. This philosophy became much more attractive to the Bush administration after September 11. Even as President Bush's approval rating dwindled, neoconservative ideology remained unscathed and played a significant role in the 2008 presidential election.
