  • The “Progressive” NATO Knowingly Slaughters Innocent People

    The mainstream left is always fomenting about how we must have the “international community’s” support before waging war. This Orwellian term should not be taken to mean the regular folks in allied nations — who are overwhelmingly against both the “bad” and “good” war — but their self-interested political leaders.  But apart from misleading, this attitude reeks of state-worship and naivete. If someone …

  • An American Gulag? And It’s Not the YAL Kind

    Guantanamo Bay is once again causing a world of controversy for — you guessed it — inhumane treatment of its prisoners. The “military detention camp” is really just a place for US leaders to circumvent the US legal system and the Constitution, all in the name of wartime procedures. An illegal invention of Bush-era lawyers, …

  • Opposed to killing, but not to war? You’re just as hypocritical as an antiwar murderer.

    How could the Fort Hood shooter be opposed to war, but not to killing?  Perhaps in the same way other people are opposed to killing, but not to war. I haven’t been following the Fort Hood story very closely, to be honest, so I don’t have much commentary to offer on the situation in general.  …

Forget Swine Flu Hysteria, there is an all-too-real breakout of American stupidity. To steer clear of this pandemic, …

  • The Hypocrisy of the State

    The irony of the state is that its chief political actors want us to think of them as individuals. This is hardly surprising — they are people, after all, and beholden to the same proclivities and social desires as is the rest of humanity. The current head head of state, Barack Obama, likewise wants us to think …

  • Hey Liberals — The Obama Administration has, is, and will continue to torture

    Those statists and “peacenik” celebrities who claim to oppose torture “on principle,” yet sanction the Obama warfare state, are deeply naive. It’s either ethical to blow children’s legs off for some “greater good,” or it is absolutely morally unacceptable. While I consider the views of a philosophical consequentialist like Henry Kissinger deplorable, he at least has some intellectual credibility that the …
