War on Terrorism

Terrorism and Blind Faith in Government

by
One of the most surprising results of the September 11 terrorist attacks is the sharp increase in the number of Americans who now trust the federal government. 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]

Crises and Blind Faith in the State

LIKE A PHOENIX RISING FROM THE ASHES, Americans’ trust in government is soaring after the September 11 terrorist attacks.

John Quincy Adams on U.S. Foreign Policy (1821)

by
And now, friends and countrymen, if the wise and learned philosophers of the elder world, the first observers of nutation and aberration, the discoverers of maddening ether and invisible planets, the inventors of Congreve rockets and Shrapnel shells, should find their hearts disposed to enquire what has America done for the benefit of mankind?

When the Going Gets Tough

by

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

by
The Founders of our nation understood two principles: first, that the greatest threat to the freedom and well-being of the citizenry lies not with some foreign enemy but rather with one’s own government, and, second, that this threat is greatest during times of crisis. That is why our ancestors refused to institute a government of ... [click for more]
