What Could Unite a Larger Peace Movement? Oh, This!

by | Nov 4, 2016

The Libertarian Institute’s first project is to try to join with progressive antiwar activist and author David Swanson’s efforts to create a new coalition of groups united in opposition to the wars in preparation for the incoming ____ presidency. Already I’ve gotten the great Jacob Hornberger to sign up the Future of Freedom Foundation and I’m talking to a few other libertarian groups about getting on board too. From there we’re going to try to bring on some conservative groups as well.

So anyway, the point: Go and sign the petition! And if you are part of any civic or political group please see about signing it up as well.

The American people, with a little help from the UK House of Commons, and admittedly the Director of National Intelligence and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, stopped a full fledged attack on the Syrian government in 2013. It was a powerful moment — an unstoppable consensus — if we can get our act back together and keep it there.

I’m not sure where all we go from here, I’ve never been much of this type of activist, but me and the boys, we’re going to give it our best.

Substantive Due Process
