Happy Armistice Day!

The day that the worst war in human history, marking the end of European Civilization, concluded with the signing of an armistice in a French rail car.

If anything demonstrates why libertarians are so staunchly anti-war, it is a conflict initiated for completely unnecessary reasons, waged by national leaders looking out for their own interests at the expense of the common mundane who died in the trenches or in No Man’s Land, only for the war to end with no gains made and nothing but motives for the next war put into place. The conflict drained wealth, destroyed entire generations, set political thought back to the dark ages, and allowed the Bolsheviks to come to power in Russia.

It’s a day when we shouldn’t honor the troops but renew our efforts to prevent the next line of war casualties who don’t necessarily die on the battlefield but come back to suffer from another kind of war, one far more insidious.

War is the health of the state; and we want the state to die.

    Couldn’t agree more. Not sure if I came across this blog via Rollo or Dalrock, but I’m glad I did.
    I became a libertarian for the fiscal conservatism, but I became a voluntarist after realizing how much more damage is caused by all of the state sanctioned murder.
