Foreign Policy & War

An Unkeepable Promise

by
President Bush should be wary of making promises he may not be able to keep. He’s vowed to prosecute a long and victorious war against “terrorism,” an amorphous “entity” if there ever was one. But before he extends his campaign beyond Afghanistan, which will have as its inevitable casualties a long list of civil liberties, ... [click for more]

Patriotism and War

by
In every war, controversies over patriotism inevitably arise. Most everyone would agree that patriotism involves the loyalty that a person has toward his country. But there are two conflicting concepts arising out of the application of that principle. One concept dictates that a citizen has a duty to make an independent, reasoned judgment of whether the ...

A Republic, If You Can Keep It

by
AT THE CLOSE OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION, a woman asked Benjamin Franklin what type of government the Constitution was bringing into existence. Franklin replied, “A republic, if you can keep it.” Regardless of one’s judgment concerning the type of government that the Constitution brought into existence in 1787, no one can deny that it was truly the most unusual and ...

Libertarian Splits in the War on Terrorism

by
Responses to the September 11 attacks have split the libertarian movement like no other issue I have seen since I discovered libertarianism almost 25 years ago. Limited-government libertarians have always maintained that one of the essential functions of government is to protect the nation from invasion or attack. The corollary to that duty is the government's ... [click for more]

Why Do They Want to Kill Us?

by
Ever since the September 11 attacks, it has almost been taboo, within both the U.S. government and the mainstream press, to openly examine and analyze the three specific reasons that Osama bin Laden has given for his holy war against the U.S. government and the American people. Suppose someone has told me that he intends to kill me. Even though ... [click for more]

What About the Children?

by
One of the most disturbing aspects of Osama bin Laden's October 7 videotape has been the reaction of U.S. officials to one of his charges -- that the U.S. government has killed a million Iraqi children. As far as I know, not one government official has denied the charge. Why not? It would seem to be rather ... [click for more]

According to a Washington Post poll released on September 27, 64 percent of Americans now "trust the government in Washington to do what is right" either "just about ... [click for more]

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]
