I am sure Mr. Berg has written an interesting book. But for me, with an M.A. and a Ph.D. in history from Mr. Wilson’s university, President Wilson is responsible for our worldwide interventionism, which led to our disastrous entry into World War I, which led to Adolf Hitler and World War II, and which has been leading both Republicans and Democrats to think they can remake the world. Many wars can be attributed posthumously to President Wilson, including any future war in Syria.
I remember a real profile in courage when George Kennan ’25 spoke at the Woodrow Wilson School around 1959 and began with a blistering attack on Wilson. That was courage and real Americanism.
