NATO’s Balkans Disaster and Wilsonian Warmongering, Part 1

Part 1 | Part 2 When ethnic Albanian guerrillas originally rejected the Rambouillet peace settlement for Kosovo fashioned by the Clinton administration, a Clinton official raged, "Here is the greatest nation on earth pleading with to do something entirely in their own interest — which is to say yes to an interim agreement — and they defy us." With ... [click for more]

Book Review: Hayek

Hayek: A Commemorative Album compiled by John Raybould (London: Adam Smith Institute, 1999); 120 pages; $19.95. I first met Friedrich A. Hayek in 1975, the year after he received the Nobel Prize in economics. I had had the exceptionally good fortune to be awarded summer fellowships for 1975 and 1977 at the Institute for Humane Studies when their offices were ... [click for more]

A Bad Precedent

Not to labor the obvious, but by now everyone surely knows to disbelieve anything the Clinton administration or NATO says about its war of aggression against Yugoslavia. Slobodan Milosevic may have accepted NATO's demands, which could lead to an end to the bombing. But that doesn't change the fact that this has been a dishonest and ... [click for more]

Lies, Damn Lies, and the Clinton Administration

What are we to do with a head of state who is responsible for the deaths of many innocent people, who has never been elected to office by a majority of citizens, and who rules by force and deceit?

Warfare-Welfare in Yugoslavia

More than 80 years ago, the United States entered World War I with the express purposes of making the world safe for democracy and making that war the one that would end all future European wars. The intervention was a radical departure from the foreign policy that George Washington had enunciated in his Farewell Address and which had been ... [click for more]

Do Our Rights Come from the Constitution?

It is commonly believed that the rights of the American people come from the Constitution. Nothing could be further from the truth. Throughout history, the standard belief was that people were unconditionally subject to the commands of their government. If the king ordered a person to leave his family to fight in a war thousands of miles away, that person ... [click for more]

Bill Clinton: World Cop

In a major foreign-policy address delivered a few months back in San Francisco, President Bill Clinton solemnly affirmed that everything everywhere in the world is the business of the United States. If you ever entertained the thought that we Americans should be free just to live our lives, raise our families, and participate voluntarily in our communities — forget ... [click for more]

Politics by Incantation

Americans pride themselves on being modern and sophisticated, but in some important matters, we are no more advanced than primitive animists in southern Sudan. To see this, just witness so much of what passes for public affairs. Leaders and led alike behave as if words shape reality. Legislation is incantation. ... [click for more]

Sabotaging Privacy for Political Profit

Federal regulators announced last December 7, Pearl Harbor Day, a brazen scheme to convert banks into conspirators against their depositors. The "Know Your Customer" rules were a landmark in the history of the attempted subversion of American privacy and property rights. But enough Americans rallied — at least temporarily — to block this power grab. The proposed rules vastly expanded ... [click for more]

Freedom in Chains: The Rise of the State and the Demise of the Citizen by James Bovard (New York: St. Martin's Press, 1999); 326 pages; $26.95. Are you better off than you were 25 years ago? Listening to critics from the left, the impression would be created that Americans are experiencing a falling standard of living and facing immanent mass ... [click for more]
