Elon Musk, Twitter, and the ‘Ministry of Truth’

header essay 1984 19561

Just last week, I finally got around with starting to read Crime and Punishment, Fyodr Dostoevsky’s famous novel about a Saint-Peterburg student’s murder of an old lady pawnbroker. The murderer and book’s main character, Rodion Raskolnikov, got the idea from a fellow student whom he overheard saying at a local eating establishment: “On the one hand, you have a nasty, stupid, worthless, meaningless, sick old woman who’s no use to anyone. […] On the other hand, you have young fresh energies that are going to waste for want of backing. […] If one were to kill her and take her money, in order...

It’s Time We Get Answers About the FBI’s Involvement In the OKC Bombing

This past week marked the 27th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing. As the worst terrorist act committed on U.S. soil at the time, we all know the reported facts of the horrific event well: a 27-year-old Desert Storm-vet, Timothy McVeigh, acting with minimal help from Terry Nichols and Michael Fortier, detonated a 7,000-pound fertilizer bomb from a parked Ryder truck outside the federal Alfred P. Murrah building, killing 168 people, 19 of them children. Two years later, in 1997, McVeigh was convicted of "Using a weapon of mass destruction resulting in death," among other federal...

Non-Interventionism In the Only Sensible Path Forward

ukraine 7052326 1280

Libertarians, Liberty-wing Republicans, and other opponents of non-defensive wars are popularly misconceived to have an “every man for himself” approach to both our economic views and foreign policy positions. Of course, this is patently false in both cases, but this piece will focus on clarifying the latter. Local Libertarian activist Roy Minet, who has also written about the former, touched on the popular myth of isolationism in his 2014 LNP article “Defense should mean defense only." “Apparently, they call anyone who doesn’t support their various military interventions around the globe...

4/22/22 William Arkin on Russia’s Failures in Ukraine

Download Episode. William Arkin joined Scott on yesterday's Antiwar Radio show to discuss the war in Ukraine. Arkin has spent the last two months following the war closely to try and get an accurate read on what’s happening on the ground. He shares his findings and latest analysis with Scott. Arkin believes that Russia’s military failures have exposed them as a paper tiger, invalidating all the money and resources that have been poured into NATO over the decades. At the same time, the absence of diplomacy and the apparent U.S. intentions to turn this conflict into a prolonged proxy war...

We Want YOU to Keep The War Going

mal

The American people are allowing their blood soaked rulers in Washington to callously prolong the war in Ukraine. The complicit media  has propagandized and lied the American people into insisting Washington double down on all their worst aggressions. And so continues the hawks’ reckless gamble on World War 3 to spite President Vladimir Putin and - once and for all - destroy Russia.  President Joe Biden’s administration and other hawks do not want the war in Ukraine to end. They are not alone, some NATO member states prefer to see the war drag on indefinitely as well. As Libertarian...

The Communist Party of China Imposes Tyrannical Lockdowns and Deadly Food Shortages

mal

(Photo Credit: shimlatimes.in) Here are a collection of excerpts from mainstream sources on the Shanghai lockdowns. **Reminder**: China has one of the highest vaccination rates on the planet at 86.1%. In Shanghai, 25 million people remain locked down as 26,087 new COVID cases were reported on Sunday...   The situation has grown increasingly dire: Two people who tried to leave their apartment to walk their dog were confronted by a COVID prevention worker who they ended up attacking. At least one man allegedly tried to get the cops to apprehend him so he could at least have food to...

America’s Exceptional Amnesia (About Those War Criminals…)

p8453 14

The top-ranking U.S. diplomat, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, recently denounced Russian president Vladimir Putin as a war criminal, which has resulted in a marked uptick in the usage of that term throughout the media. Putin decided to invade Ukraine in February 2022 and has killed people in the process. That’s what happens when leaders decide to address conflict through the application of military force: people die. The U.S. government has needless to say killed many people in its military interventions abroad, most recently in the Middle East and Africa. Yet Americans are often...

Lew Rockwell Was Right About China

18 fb yelew 1200x630

Over the last year, I have focused much of my work on opposing the New Cold War with Russia and China—particularly with China. In a recent piece, “‘No One is Calling for War with China,’” I tackled a claim that I’ve been hearing recently. I understand the argument to go like this: “advocating tougher China policy is not advocating war against China.” In a very literal sense, this argument is correct. Those who advocate tougher China policy are not literally suggesting war with China. But even real dyed-in-the-wool China hawks aren't demanding war. So, if not literally calling for war is...

Uncle Sam’s Grand Delusion

tio sam f granma

On Monday, March 28, the Pentagon submitted its 2022 National Defense Strategy (NDS) to Congress. While the entire report remains classified, an unclassified fact sheet was released to the media. It identified the Pentagon’s four main defense priorities: Defending the homeland, paced to the growing multi-domain threat posed by the PRC. Deterring strategic attacks against the United States, Allies, and its partners. Deterring aggression, while being prepared to prevail in conflict when necessary, prioritizing the PRC challenge in the Indo-Pacific, then the Russia challenge in Europe....
