The Anatomy of the State

The anatomy of the state, by Murry N. Rothbard, is a fantastic essay. Everyone should give it a read: http://www.lewrockwell.com/rothbard/rothbard62.html What the State Is Not The State is almost universally considered an institution of social service. Some theorists venerate the State as the apotheosis of society; others regard it as an amiable, though often inefficient, […]

  • The World’s Most Dangerous Border
    The divided south Asian mountain state of Kashmir is like a volcano: forgotten when quiescent, but terrifying when it comes alive. After the first India-Pakistan War in 1947, in which the British Indian Raj was divided into Hindu and Muslim-dominated states, India ended up with two-thirds of the formerly independent mountain state of Kashmir, and the new sta […]
  • Bombing Enemies That Can’t Fight Back
    What, precisely, is the US military for, and what, precisely, can it do? In practical terms, how powerful is it? On paper, it is formidable, huge, with carrier battle groups, advanced technology, remarkable submarines, satellites, and so on. What does this translate to? Military power does not exist independently, but only in relation to specific circumstanc […]
  • Strife Within the War Party
    I learned of the following from the recent interview of Stephen F. Cohen by John Batchelor: WASHINGTON — The agreement that Secretary of State John Kerry announced with Russia to reduce the killing in Syria has widened an increasingly public divide between Mr. Kerry and Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter, who has deep reservations about the plan for American […]
  • The US Military
    Although the whole Vietnam War was a crime from start to finish, one particular event that occurred on March 16, 1968, has always been remembered as particularly horrific: the My Lai Massacre. On that day U.S. soldiers from Charlie Company of the 1st Battalion, 20th Infantry Regiment, 11th Brigade, 23rd Infantry Division, visited the village of My Lai and ki […]
  • Was Nevada Once Slightly Libertarian?
    While Nevada’s public is spared excessive lawmaker interference as its Legislature only meets every other year for 120 consecutive days, this year will be the third in a row the Legislature will be called into special session to vote on a handout for a billionaire. There was a time Nevada was thought to be libertarian, with no income taxes, bars that never c […]

  • Dead Is Dead
    by Scott Cattanach Just this year, the National Academy of Sciences concluded that CAFE (“Corporate Average Fuel Economy” – the federal government’s new car fuel economy standard enacted in 1975) had contributed to the deaths of an extra 1,300 to 2,600 Americans every year in traffic accidents.  A 1989 Brookings-Harvard study estimated an annual death … Cont […]
  • Don’t Play Their Games
    by Johan R:son Sjöberg 4/16/2004 So you say you’re tired of government and all its stupidity? You say you don’t like its arbitrary rules, regulations, prohibitions, tariffs, controls, et cetera? You say you don’t know what to do to get rid of it? I’ve got some good and some bad news for you. I’ll start … Continue reading "Don’t Play Their Games" Th […]
  • The Meaning of Jurisdiction
    by Paul Hein 5/5/2004 If you ever instigate a lawsuit, one of the first things that you will likely file with the court, as part of your initial complaint, is a statement of jurisdiction. I am not a lawyer, but I gather that this is routine: a complainant acknowledging that the court has the jurisdiction … Continue reading "The Meaning of Jurisdiction […]

  • The New Cold Warriors Sic the FBI on Donald Trump
    While we have gotten used to the neo-McCarthyite tactics employed by the Clinton campaign linking Donald Trump to the Kremlin, the whole disgraceful operation has reached a new low with the introduction of US law enforcement agencies into the mix. According to a report by Michael Isikoff – who has become the Judy Miller of […] The post The New Cold Warriors […]
  • How the Pentagon Sank the US-Russia Deal in Syria – and the Ceasefire
    Another US-Russian Syria ceasefire deal has been blown up. Whether it could have survived even with a US-Russian accord is open to doubt, given the incentives for al-Qaeda and its allies to destroy it. But the politics of the US-Russian relationship played a central role in the denouement of the second ceasefire agreement. The final […] The post How the Pent […]
  • Do Orcs Love Their Children Too?
    The World of Warcraft movie flopped in the States. That’s no great injustice. The movie isn’t exactly high fantasy. It compares miserably to “sword and sorcery” classics like the Lord of the Rings trilogy. But there is one failing in Tolkien’s tales that Warcraft avoids. This flaw was pointed out by Game of Thrones creator […] The post Do Orcs Love Their Chi […]
  • What To Do in Syria: Stop the Killing
    Maybe half a million dead, half a country – 10 million people – displaced from their homes, jettisoned onto the mercy of the world. Welcome to war. Welcome to Syria. This is a conflict apparently too complex to understand. The U.S. brokered a ceasefire with Russia, then proceeded to lead a bombing strike that killed […] The post What To Do in Syria: Stop the […]

    Busy weekend for terrorism. Nine people stabbed in a shopping mall in Minnesota (meh), and the big one in New Jersey/New York. It was there Afghan American Ahmad Rahami made up a bunch of pipe bombs and pressure cooker IEDs, distributed them in four separate locations, and set off two explosions. The one detonation in […] The post Department of Homeless Secu […]
  • The Saga of Sisyphus
    Shimon Peres is a genius. A genius of impersonation. All his life he has worked on his public persona. The image replaced the man. Almost all the articles written about him since he fell ill are about the imagined person, not the real one. As the Americans like to say: He is so phony he […] The post The Saga of Sisyphus appeared first on Antiwar.com Original […]
  • The War Against the Assad Regime Is Not a ‘Pipeline War’
    The reason put forward by the Obama administration for the war against the Bashar al-Assad regime – saving the Syrian people from suffering and death at the hands of Assad – has no credibility with anyone familiar with the record of US interventions for regime change around the world. As has been the case with […] The post The War Against the Assad Regime Is […]
