The Great War Against Liberty

I oppose war. I oppose the “war” on terror and the murders, kidnappings, destruction, and spying committed in its name. I oppose the “war” on drugs and the millions of people who have been kidnapped, caged, and killed by the states and enforcers who wage it. I oppose the “war” on poverty and the massive theft and redistribution undertaken using it as an excuse.

All of these “wars” are but a pretext for the one great war which the state has always waged against individual liberty. Benjamin Franklin once said, “There never was a good war, or a bad peace,” but he could just as accurately have noted that there never was a good state… Because every state will always be at war with anyone who desires freedom, liberty, and independence. I oppose war. I oppose the state. Those aren’t two different concepts. They’re exactly the same.
