There are many arguments for ethical egoism such as the Self-Reliance Argument and the Best Argument for Ethical Egoism, both presented by Shafer-Landau in The Fundamentals of Ethics.

According to Bacevich, the policies of Washington and Adams defined the nation’s proper orientation toward the outside world. For example, Washington one urged his countrymen to “give mankind the magnanimous and too novel example of a people always guided by an exalted justice and benevolence. Why quit our own to stand upon foreign ground?” In addition, John Adams elaborating on Washington’s themes insisted that “the United States does not go abroad, in search of monsters to destroy.
