Just as Wilson, a ‘liberal’ reformer, led the United States into World War I ‘to make the world safe for democracy’--so Franklin D. Roosevelt, another ‘liberal’ reformer, led it into World War II, in the name of the ‘Four Freedoms.’ In both cases the ‘conservatives’--and the big business interests--were overwhelmingly opposed to war but were silenced. In the case of World War II they were smeared as ‘isolationists,’ ‘reactionaries,’ and ‘America-First’ers. World War I led, not to ‘democracy,’ but to the creation of three dictatorships: Soviet Russia, Fascist Italy, Nazi Germany. World War II led, not to ‘Four Freedoms,’ but to the surrender of one-third of the world’s population into communist slavery. If peace were the goal of today’s intellectuals, a failure of that magnitude--and the evidence of unspeakable suffering on so large a scale--would make them pause and check their statist premises. Instead, blind to everything but their hatred for capitalism, they are now asserting that ‘poverty breeds wars’ (and justifying war by sympathizing with a ‘material greed’ of that kind). But the question is: What breeds poverty? If you look a the world of today and if you look back at history, you will see the answer: the degree of a country's freedom is the degree of its prosperity. Another current catch-phrase is the complaint that the nations of the world are divided into ‘haves’ and the ‘have-nots.’ Observe that the ‘haves’ are those who have freedom, and that it is freedom that the ‘have-nots’ have not. If men want to oppose war, it is statism that they must oppose. So long as they hold the tribal notion that the individual is sacrificial fodder for the collective, that some men have the right to rule others by force, and that some (any) alleged ‘good’ can justify it--there can be no peace within a nation and no peace among nations.

Part 1 of a three part series on the ethics of voting by George H. Smith.  This work is done from the Libertarian point of view and discusses the difference among the factions of the Libertarian culture.

Thomas Jefferson is America’s favourite whipping boy. Not among the public, which remains either ambivalent or blissfully ignorant of American history. But this certainly is the case among our pampered elites; nowadays, Jefferson is even more despised than such longtime bogeys as Joe McCarthy and Richard Nixon.

The Plan is for the United States to rule the world. The overt theme is unilateralism, but it is ultimately a story of domination. It calls for the United States to maintain its overwhelming military superiority and prevent new rivals from rising up to challenge it on the world stage. This is Dick Cheney's plan for the United States.

The more that representative government is asked to do, the more its future—and that of individual liberty—are clouded by the threat of dictatorship, whether by committee or by Fuehrer. This is Overworking “Democracy”

Losing the War on Terror and the Prostitution of Faith--Whores of Babylon Kiss the Ass of Empire.

We have come to embrace government most when its promises of protection and prosperity which has always resulted in our further destruction.  It is under such circumstances that energy in government has been the greatest.  As Albert Jay Nock once said, “The State always moves slowly and grudgingly towards any purpose that accrues to society’s advantage, but moves rapidly and with alacrity towards one that accrues to its own advantage.”

The Stars and Stripes represent a LIE. The Word of God tells us that we are to represent truth; we are to hate evil and love the good (Amos 5:15; Psalm 97:10; Revelation 22:14 &15)

THAT WHICH IS SEEN, AND THAT WHICH IS NOT SEEN by Frederic Bastiat. This work is in PDF.

Abraham Lincoln is thought of by many as not only the greatest American statesman but as a great conservative.  He was neither.  Understanding this is a necessary condition for any genuinely American conservatism.

Our present society is awash with well-intentioned but dangerous men and women with all kinds of coercively-enforced proposals for making the world "better."  So what is in an election?

There is something about McCarthy.  The confusion.

The real problem is that we are being ruled by a group of elitist politicians who absolutely refuse to obey the law. We can fight the symptoms all we want, but until we deal with the core issue - that lawbreakers are ruling our nation - we have no chance of getting this mess straightened out.

To understand what we are doing in Iraq, we have to go back to a war that is almost a hundred years old. In its day it was called The Great War. Now we call it World War I.  What We're Grappling with in Iraq Is Woodrow Wilson's Legacy.

There has never been a "Civil War" in America.

Physical might is right in the Hard Wilsonian view, whereas the Soft Wilsonians prefer pushing diplomacy onto their subjects as opposed to fierce military and nation-building campaigns. Which is one of the reasons Neo-Wilsonianism...(is the)...Great-Granddaddy of Neoconservatism.

In Iraq today, humiliation under the coalition forces sparks a mounting hatred of their presence and a hunger to restore Iraqis' pride. The appetite for rekindled self-respect resembles that of the Johnny Rebs of 1865. Reminding us of the Sad Parallels Between Iraq and Reconstruction.

America’s academic and political institutions have been reduced to a dangerous one-party system. The one-party system is known as “Republicrats.” It’s the major reason why half of America’s eligible voters no longer vote. Why bother. Democrats and Republicans are one and the same on most issues and positions.

There are some distinct parallels between the "democratic” Athenians of 5 BC and the “democratic” Americans.  Those parallels go much further than just the incredible amount of stupid arrogance that each flaunted.

If you know anything about the Ancient Athenian democracy you know that it failed and failed miserably.  You should also know that criticisms of the democratic system and those ignorant neocons begin with the historian Thucydides.

Statism: The Opiate of the Elites

Caligula: humanist who made his horse a Roman senator.

Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear—kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor—with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil at home or some monstrous foreign power that was going to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it.~General Douglas MacArthur (1880-1964), Supreme Allied Commander, General of the U.S. Army
