But America and England cannot choose to be anything than Atlanticist powers, just as Russia cannot be anything but a Eurasian power.
Mainstream opinion in England and the US accepts the need for these countries to maintain global interests and denies the possibility of their alignment with a country such as Russia or the US.
However, fringe groups in these countries, whether they were communists or fascists did seek alignment with continental powers. The example of the communists is most interesting as both the British and American communists were very supportive of any Soviet foreign policy decision, even if it contradicted the strategic vision of their countries.
Therefore how would a theoretical communist America or communist England have reconciled their ideological aims with International Relations theory about the strategic imperatives of their countries?
