IThat is interesting.  Looks like James Dale Davidson and Lord William Rees-Mogg were right but about twenty years early.  This seems to be a general theme emerging in the western world these days and it is not unexpected.  If they are right then it would not be unexpected to see organizations like the EU to go the way of the League of Nations.

And this has historically happened before? Prior to ww2? What was the cause for it to happen in America back then and is it similar to what is causing it now?

Foreign policy in the United States was far less interventionist prior to the Second World War.  The term isolationist, most often used as a pejorative, originates from the thirties and the anti-war protests led by the Lost.  In fact America had a foreign policy close to modern Switzerland.  Trade with anyone but no entangling alliances with no one which dates from George Washington.
Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard. -- H.L. Mencken

If one rejects laissez faire on account of man's fallibility and moral weakness, one must for the same reason also reject every kind of government action.   -- Ludwig von Mises
