7/4/12 Anthony Gregory

Anthony Gregory discusses his article “Are You Libertarian Enough?” and
gives Antiwar Radio co-host Zooey Greif a libertarian litmus test.

Antiwar Radio: Anthony Gregory

Anthony Gregory, Research Editor at the Independent Institute, discusses his article Non-Interventionism: Cornerstone of a Free Society; why war is just legalized mass murder, made acceptable because a state instead of an individual does it; why Americans have a hard time seeing their own government as an aggressive war-maker (were the good guys!); the irony of veteran soldiers (who supposedly fought for our freedom) getting killed by cops while peacefully demonstrating; and getting lied into war yet again, this time with Iran.

Antiwar Radio: Anthony Gregory

Anthony Gregory, Research Editor at the Independent Institute, discusses his article Seventy Years of Infamy about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor; why WWII doesnt deserve to be remembered as the good war; the birth of the military-industrial complex; how the war on terror is killing our constitution and civil liberties; and strategies for stopping future wars before they start.

Antiwar Radio: Anthony Gregory

Anthony Gregory, Research Editor at the Independent Institute, discusses his article on Armistice Day; how a day celebrating the end of WWI became Veterans Day in the US where the military is revered and militarism relished; the frequent reminders that the US government doesnt care about its soldiers or veterans; and how multiple simultaneous wars with indefinite durations have become the new normal.

Antiwar Radio: Anthony Gregory

Anthony Gregory, Editor in Chief of Campaign for Liberty, discusses the arguments bound to convince social conservatives that ending the War on Drugs if not outright legalization is the best course of action; why a free society would choose family/community solutions to social problems (like drug addiction) instead of creating a police state that makes everything worse; getting the federal government out of the drug business and letting states regulate, like they do with alcohol and tobacco; why drug potency tends to increase during times of prohibition; and why ending the War on Drugs would be among the greatest advances to individual liberty imaginable.

Antiwar Radio: Anthony Gregory

Anthony Gregory, research analyst at the Independent Institute, discusses his article Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and the U.S. Terror State at LewRockwell.com; questioning the greatness and necessity of dropping atomic bombs on Japan; Americas unofficial civic religion of state-worship and war mythology; how the US war machine of the 60s and 70s continues to kill civilians in SE Asia; and how the war on terrorism has provided cover for the belligerence of bigots and racists.

Antiwar Radio: Anthony Gregory

Anthony Gregory, Editor in Chief of Campaign for Liberty, discusses his article Worse Than a Third Bush Term? evaluating Obamas presidential performance thus far; the Nullify Now! speeches on YouTube from the May 28th event in Los Angeles; how the Libya War raises Obamas notoriety to Bushs level; the US-supported Libyan rebels who learned their craft by fighting US troops in Iraq; and why most Americans still cant put aside political party loyalties to demand an end to the wars.

Antiwar Radio: Anthony Gregory

Anthony Gregory, Editor in Chief of Campaign for Liberty, discusses Murray Rothbards book Wall Street, Banks, and American Foreign Policy (with an introduction by Anthony Gregory); banks and the war machine, closely collaborating since the 1800s; shattering the left-right paradigm and finding the intersection of corporate power and public corruption; why the US economic system is not now, and has never been, based on unfettered free market capitalism; and how the state apparatus attracts those seeking power and privilege, putting the lie to the Marxist theory of capturing government to help the little guy.

Antiwar Radio: Anthony Gregory

Anthony Gregory, Editor in Chief of Campaign for Liberty, discusses his article From Waco to Libya: 18 Years of Humanitarian Mass Murder; the ATFs Operation Showtime raid on the Branch Davidians, designed as a public relations stunt; going from bad to worse at Waco, with the FBI in charge and special forces soldiers set loose on civilians; and the crux of government humanitarianism: killing people in order to save them.

Antiwar Radio: Anthony Gregory

Anthony Gregory, Editor in Chief of Campaign for Liberty, discusses his article, Americas Peacetime Crimes against Iraq, a review of Joy Gordons book Invisible War: The United States and the Iraq Sanctions; the slow death of Iraqis from entirely preventable diseases and malnutrition during the 1990-2003 sanctions; the double-whammy of an international blockade and UN-administered economic central planning; the Clinton administrations focus on regime change, not disarmament, as a condition for dropping sanctions; and why the collective punishment of Iraqi civilians in order to provoke an uprising against Saddam Hussein is aptly described as terrorism.
