Please respond with 100 to 150 words to this student post Explain what the authors mean by “idealism” and “realism” in internationalpolitics. When Roskin and Berry speak of idealism in internationalpolitics they are referring to our leaders making decisions and policies based on learned religious moral values, society’s norms and ethics, and legal rights and responsibilities both nationally and internationally (Roskin & Berry, 2010, pg. 57). One example of political idealist was President Woodrow Wilson who believed that world politics and disputes should be negotiated with legal agreements founded in mutual moralities between countries (Roskin & Berry, 2010, pg. 26). When Roskin and Berry speak of realism ininternational politics they are referring to our leaders making decisions and policies based on a fundamental need to gain global political power in order to spread democracy, freedom of religion and capitalism to the world. This approach was first applied nationally as Manifest Destiny and later by Imperialism. The underlying thought is that if America wants to be strong and stable than we need to impose our national beliefs globally, so that the World can also become more economically, socially, and morally aligned.
