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.

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.
