Harvard students believe that the United States is a bigger threat to world peace than the ISIL terrorist organization, according to a recent survey at the prestigious university.
Campus Reform, a campus watchdog, asked Harvard students, “Who is the bigger threat to world peace, ISIS or the US?”
Many students said they vehemently believed that the United States and its interventionist foreign policy posed a greater threat to the world than ISIL, or ISIS, which is responsible for many atrocities in Iraq and Syria, including beheadings of Western hostages.
“American imperialism and our protection of oil interests in the Middle East are destabilizing the region and allowing groups like ISIS to gain power,” one student told Caleb Bonham, editor of Campus Reform and a frequent guest on Fox News. “We are, at some level, the cause of it.”
Another student said the West is to blame for a lot of the problems that the world is facing now. “I don’t think anyone would argue that we didn’t create the problem of ISIS, ourselves.”
Another responder said the US was a greater threat because “America is making decisions that are much more likely to affect the world.”
“The amount of spending that America has on causes of potential destruction in the world is really outlandish,” she noted.
Harvard, located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is the oldest academic institute in the United States and enjoys an almost unparalleled reputation in the world.
