He didn’t suggest a full-scale invasion, but he did propose something similar to our program, "Plan Colombia." If you’re not familiar, Plan Colombia is officially the … Continue reading "To Ted Cruz: Further Militarizing Mexico’s Drug War Is a Horrible Idea"

Israel vs. the United Nations: The Nikki Haley Doctrine

The United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, seems to be championing a single cause: Israel. When Haley speaks about Israel, her language is not merely emotive nor tailored to fit the need of a specific occasion. Rather, her words are resolute, consistent and are matched by a clear plan of action. Along … Continue reading "Israel vs. the United Nations: The Nikki Haley Doctrine"

This site is devoted to the cause of non-interventionism and is read by libertarians, pacifists, leftists, "greens," and independents alike, as well as many on the Right who agree with our opposition to imperialism. Our initial project was to fight against intervention in the Balkans under the Clinton presidency. We applied the same principles to Clinton's campaigns in Haiti and Kosovo and bombings of Sudan and Afghanistan. Our politics are libertarian: our opposition to war is rooted in Randolph Bourne's concept that "War is the health of the State." With every war, America has made a "great leap" into statism, and as Bourne emphasized, "it is during war that one best understands the nature of that institution [the State]." At its core, that nature includes an ever increasing threat to individual liberty and the centralization of political power.
