Politics and Deception in Wartime. Foreign Service Officer (ret.) Peter Van Buren & Keith Knight

by | May 2, 2022

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.

Murray N. Rothbard, Ph.D., Egalitarianism as a Revolt Against Nature, pp. 119

Peter Van Buren is a retired United States Foreign Service Officer and author of Hooper’s War Peter Van Buren spent a year in Iraq. He also writes weekly for The American Conservative and The Spectator.
