The Sooner That Disunion Takes Place....

The Better.

The American State

There may be someone else from another party in the Oval Office, but the approaches to foreign and domestic policy appear to be the same in slightly different clothing.

The Name and Face May Be Different.....

But it looks like more of the same when it comes to foreign policy.

The time is long overdue for a constituionalist, noninterventionist foreign policy.

More On The Bitter Legacy Of The Great War

Much of private life was nationalized:

All this was in direct opposition to both the conservative and liberal values of the 19th century, but liberals in Europe and the United States underwent a transformation: starting as champions of individual autonomy, they became slaves to group security. In this scenario, the war became, as Murray Rothbard and others have pointed out, fulfillment.[8] The policies are too familiar to enumerate: economic intervention on all sides, heavy-handed cheerleading to join the war "system," continual denunciation of internal enemies, disregard of the rule of law, massive transfer of wealth from the hands of individuals, families, and other private sources to the state. Not least of these trends was the overpowering of private lives and even privacy. From the vacuous propaganda extolling groupthink in all the societies of the belligerents to the very real breakup of family units by the Bolsheviks, the war was the cover for multifarious inroads of the interference of the state in private life.

Pro Libertate: The Torture State Endures

Pro Libertate: The Torture State Endures

I watched some of the inauguration ceremonies on the telly this past Tuesday. Prior to the swearing-in ceremonies, the crowds acted like fugitives from a Nuremberg rally.

The Israeli War On Gaza

It has been a while since I last entered something on this weblog. Here is Karen Kwiatkowski's take on Israel's ongoing war against Gaza. My thinking is that the Israelis are trying to get as much done as possible before the incoming administration takes office a week from tomorrow.

Is This Country....

Going to be converted into one BIG reservation?

A century after Wounded Knee, the same American Leviathan that had starved the Sioux into submission imposed a murderous embargo of Iraq that would last for more than a decade and kill hundreds of thousands of children. After using starvation and the denial of medical necessities to soften up the Iraqis, the Empire – already bogged down in Afghanistan – launched an invasion Iraq.

And as Scott Horton of AntiWarRadio points out, wherever the Empire deploys its legions abroad, the territory not under imperial control is referred to as "Indian country." With entirely unwarranted optimism, most Americans assume that this only applies abroad. But every once in a while – as at Ruby Ridge or Waco – the Empire offers a bloody reminder that Wounded Knee remains the official template for dealing with any resistance, foreign or domestic.

In a fascinating interview with Scott Horton, Indian activist Russell Means describes how the American Indian Reservation System has been the incubator for totalitarian social engineering programs both here and abroad. The subjugation of the American Indian, he warns, provided the model for the ongoing dispossession of the American middle class.

What happened with the Indians in the 19th Century could very well happen to the rest of us peons.
