Summary:
The United States and its allies must make explicitly clear their interests in stability in the Indo-Pacific commons, actively underwrite such efforts, and reach out to other nations in the region to join the common cause. The spread of democracy has made Europe, first Western then Eastern, stable for several generations. East Asia benefited most of all from the spread of liberal systems over the past three decades, with the United States playing the key supporting role. Today, given its increased importance to global prosperity, the cause of wider Indo-Pacific security and liberalism should be U.S. policymakers' primary focus. The expenses we will incur to do so will pale next to the costs we will pay for failing to secure the Indo-Pacific commons in the coming decades.
