Interviewed Tuesday at RT, Ron Paul described the foreign policy mission of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity (RPI), which Paul founded in 2013 after completing his final term in the United States House of Representatives. Paul explains that RPI, of which Paul is chairman, has as a goal challenging interventionist United States foreign policy through changing people’s minds in the face of opposition, including from deep state and military-industrial complex influence in the media and the US Congress.
“[A]t the institute,” says Paul, “we believe that our role should be to develop friendships and trade with countries.” Paul continues:
Most every country in the world is imperfect, including ours. But, our immediate goal should be to improve ourselves and not pretend that we can tell other people how to live and who should run their countries.
Watch here Paul’s complete interview, in which Paul also discusses the deployment of US military members around the world:
