When the U.S. assumed the Pax Americana (US military led peace), it assumed responsibility for global order, but for how long? Just how deeply entangled should America be in the world's affairs? What alternatives are there to being the world's policemen? Is there really a downside to retreat? And in the absence of the U.S., how might global order be maintained - or decimated? In a companion documentary to America in Retreat by Wall Street Journal's Pulitzer Prize winning columnist Bret Stephens, Free To Choose Executive Editor and Cato Senior Fellow Johan Norberg examine the questions facing a nation leaning back toward isolationism.

After the screening, there will be a Q&A with Johan Norberg, documentary host, Kip Perry, producer and co-director, and Bruce Thornton, military history research fellow at the Hoover Institute. The discussion will be lead by Bob Chitester, founder and CEO of Free To Choose Media.
