Blowback, Intervention, and RussiaGate. Scott Horton and Keith Knight

War, then, even a just defensive war, is only proper when the exercise of violence is rigorously limited to the individual criminals themselves.

Murray N. Rothbard
Man, Economy, and State with Power and Market, p. 190

The market is an interpersonal relation of peace and harmony; statism is a relation of war and caste conflict.

Cooperation and Coercion – Book Summary and Analysis

… in a world of voluntary social cooperation through mutually beneficial exchanges, where one man’s gain is another man’s gain, it is obvious that great scope is provided for the development of social sympathy and human friendships. It is the peaceful, cooperative society that creates favorable conditions for feelings of friendship among men.… the social relations formed by the division of labor tend to be permanent as individuals specialize in different tasks and continue to produce in those fields.

Why They Hate Us

Why They Hate Us

The data show that there is little connection between suicide terrorism and Islamic fundamentalism, or any one of the world’s religions. In fact, the leading instigators of suicide attacks are the Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka, a Marxist-Leninist group whose members are from Hindu families but who are adamantly opposed to religion. This group committed 76 of the 315 incidents, more suicide attacks than Hamas.

Rather, what nearly all suicide terrorist attacks have in common is a specific secular and strategic goal: to compel modern democracies to withdraw military forces from territory that the terrorists consider to be their homeland. Religion is rarely the root cause, although it is often used as a tool by terrorist organizations in recruiting and in other efforts in service of the broader strategic objective.

The War on Terror: Origins, Motives, and Results. Scott Horton and Keith Knight

The War on Terror: Origins, Motives, and Results. Scott Horton and Keith Knight

In war, State power is pushed to its ultimate, and, under the slogans of “defense” and “emergency,” it can impose a tyranny upon the public such as might be openly resisted in time of peace. War thus provides many benefits to a State, and indeed every modern war has brought to the warring peoples a permanent legacy of increased State burdens upon society.

Murray N. Rothbard

Egalitarianism as a Revolt Against Nature, pp. 80–81

 

The Libertarian’s basic attitude toward war must … be: it is legitimate to use violence against criminals in defense of one’s rights of person and property; it is completely impermissible to violate the rights of other innocent people. War, then, is only proper when the exercise of violence is rigorously limited to the individual criminals.

Propaganda – Book Summary and Analysis

Propaganda – Book Summary and Analysis

Lacking the direct test of success or failure, the voter tends to turn, not to those politicians whose policies have the best chance of success, but to those who can best “sell” their propaganda ability. Without grasping logical chains of deduction, the average voter will never be able to discover the errors that his ruler makes.

Murray N. Rothbard
Man, Economy, and State with Power and Market, p. 887

 

One of the most vital struggles in the writing and publishing of history is the conflict between the government’s propaganda myths, enshrined in “official history,” and historical reality brought forward by “revisionism.”

Murray N. Rothbard

Left and Right, p. 231

Edward Louis Bernays was an Austrian-American pioneer in the field of public relations and propaganda, referred to in his New York Times obituary as “the father of public relations” Bernays was named one of the 100 most influential Americans of the 20th century by Life Magazine.

Antifa: Anarchists or Communists?

Antifa: Anarchists or Communists?

Violent, worldwide revolution, in Marx’s version made by the oppressed proletariat, would be the instrument of the advent of his millennium, communism.

Murray N. Rothbard

Classical Economics, p. 317

 

 

In the long run, as we have seen under communism, the parasitic sector destroys the private productive sector and harms even the parasites in the process.

Murray N. Rothbard

Making Economic Sense, p. 22

‘Antifa’ is an organization which advocates and engages in the initiation of violence against peaceful people.  This is entirely consistent with the abolition of private property, aka communism, and the antithesis of anarchism, the claim that no person or group of people have the right to rule peaceful people.

The Most Dangerous Superstition – Book Summary and Analysis

The Most Dangerous Superstition – Book Summary and Analysis

The belief in “authority,” which includes all belief in “government,” is irrational and self-contradictory; it is contrary to civilization and morality, and constitutes the most dangerous, destructive superstition that has ever existed. Rather than being a force for order and justice, the belief in “authority” is the arch-enemy of humanity.   Pg. 3

 

If human beings are so careless, stupid and malicious that they cannot be trusted to do the right thing on their own, how would the situation be improved by taking a subset of those very same careless, stupid and malicious human beings and giving them societal permission to forcibly control all the others? Pg. 26

 

Perhaps most telling is that if you suggest to the average person that maybe God does not exist, he will likely respond with less emotion and hostility than if you bring up the idea of life without “government.” This indicates which religion people are more deeply emotionally attached to, and which religion they actually believe in more firmly. In fact, they believe so deeply in “government” that they do not even recognize it as being a belief at all. Pg. 29

 

If, for example, someone has a “right” to housing, and housing comes only from the knowledge, skills and efforts of other people, it means that one person has the right to force another person to build him a house. Pg. 117

 

All statists believe that the people who make up “government” have an exemption from basic human morality, and not only may do things which others have no right to do, but should and must do such things, for the (supposed) good of society. The type and degree of aggression varies, but all statists advocate aggression. Pg. 121

 

To quickly review, people cannot delegate rights they do not have, which makes it impossible for anyone to acquire the right to rule (”authority”). People cannot alter morality, which makes the “laws” of “government” devoid of any inherent “authority.” Ergo, “authority”-the right to rule-cannot logically exist. Pg. 144

Chaotic Law of the Jungle – Statism v. Libertarianism

Chaotic Law of the Jungle – Statism v. Libertarianism

Businesses are always eager for consumers to buy their product or service. On the free market, the consumer is king or queen and the “providers” are always trying to make profits and gain customers by serving them well. But when government operates a service, the consumer is transmuted into a pain-in-the-neck, a “wasteful” user-up of scarce social resources. Whereas the free market is a peaceful cooperative place where everyone benefits and no one loses; when government supplies the product or service, every consumer is treated as using a resource only at the expense of his fellow men. Th e “public service” arena, and not the free market, is the dog-eat-dog jungle.

The Truth About the U.S. / Saudi Genocide in Yemen – Scott Horton and Keith Knight

Mankind is a mixture of good and evil, of cooperative and criminal tendencies. In my view, the anarchist society is one which maximizes the tendencies for the good and the cooperative, while it minimizes both the opportunity and the moral legitimacy of the evil and the criminal. If the anarchist view is correct, and the State is indeed the great legalized and socially legitimated channel for all manner of antisocial crime — theft , oppression, mass murder — on a massive scale, then surely the abolition of such an engine of crime can do nothing but favor the good in man and discourage the bad….The anarchist view holds that, given the “nature of man,” given the degree of goodness or badness at any point of time, anarchism will maximize the opportunities for good and minimize the channels for the bad.
