Here's some more level-headed analysis of the impact of the Bush Doctrine by Karl Zinsmeister of The American Enterprise. Karl includes the following Abraham Lincoln quote, which is just as apropos today as it was 150 years ago:
Most governments have been based, practically, on the denial of the equal rights of men...Ours began by affirming those rights.

They said some men are too ignorant and vicious to share in government. Possibly so, said we; and by your system, you would always keep them ignorant and vicious.

We proposed to give all a chance; and we expected the weak to grow stronger, the ignorant wiser, and all better, and happier together.
