Terrorism and Blind Faith in Government

The War on Terrorism

by
With the publication of the first issue of Freedom Daily in January 1990, we made a vow that we have repeated every year since then: Never will we compromise that which we consider to be right and true. Since then, as long-time supporters and subscribers know, we have never hesitated to fulfill that vow, no matter what ... [click for more]

The New World Disorder

by
AFTER MORE THAN A DECADE into the New World Order the only thing that looks new is the disorder on American soil wreaked by foreign terrorists on September 11. The atrocities of that day nearly defy the imagination. The assault by air on, and collapse of, the wondrous World Trade Center towers might have made a cinematic spectacle, but ... [click for more]

When the Going Gets Tough

by
During a crisis such as this, it is easy for the advocate of liberty to become discouraged, especially given the willingness of so many people, including those in the conservative and libertarian movements, to surrender their liberty to the hands of their own government in the hope that their government will ...

Mistaken about Motives

by
It does no honor to the thousands of innocent victims of the September 11 terrorism attacks to fool ourselves about the motives behind that mass murder and destruction. The Bush administration says incessantly that the terrorism was an attack on civilization: freedom, prosperity, self-government. Government officials, pundits, and cartoonists insist that the terrorists’ intent is ... [click for more]

The Case for an America First Foreign Policy

by
(Excerpted from The Failure of America’s Foreign Wars, published by The Future of Freedom Foundation in 1996) For most of our history, America First was the foreign policy of the United States. The record is laid out by the great historian Charles A. Beard in A Foreign Policy for America, published in 1940. In our dealings overseas, we ... [click for more]

A Time for Calm Reflection and Adherence to Law

That is why our ancestors refused to institute a government of ... [click for more]

The Hypocritical Ban on Travel to Cuba

by
A conflict between the Bush administration and Congress over travel to Cuba once again brings to light the hypocritical policies of the U.S. government. President Bush has called for stricter enforcement of the 39-year-old economic embargo against Cuba, and the U.S. Treasury Department is willingly complying by stepping up efforts to punish Americans who ...

What Are We Fighting For?

by
Long before the attacks on New York and Washington, The Future of Freedom Foundation repeatedly warned that the U.S. government's interventionist foreign policy resented significant risks to the American people. See, for example, "Terrorism or War"(June 2000) by Jacob G. Hornberger, "Breeding Terrorism" (December 1999) by Sheldon Richman, and "Terrorism, Anti-Terrorism, and American Foreign ...
