by | Nov 13, 2021

Hunter DeRensis joins me to discuss his recent featured article at the American Conservative. This piece tells the little remembered story of a congressional inquest into war profiteering during the first World War. Hunter’s piece also traces the history of the military industrial complex and public opinion regarding the US militarism into the present day. Hunter is the editor for the Libertarian Institute, the Communications Director for the veterens organization Bring Our Troops Home, a former senior reporter at the National Interest, and a contributor to the American Conservative.
