War is the health of the state. – Randolph Bourne

Why do conservatives, who absolutely insist that they hate big government and believe in the sanctity of human life, have such an endless enthusiasm for war?

War is a big government program.

How so?

  1. It is ruinously expensive.
  2. It always brings restrictions on freedom.
  3. It is not pro-life.
  4. It is perpetuated by endless lies.
  5. It is full of unintended consequences.
  6. It centralizes executive authority.
  7. Those who support it are in total denial about its real world implications.

About Food for the Thinkers

My name is Doug Newman. I live in Aurora, Colorado, just outside Denver. Food for the Thinkers is mostly about the connection between Christianity and libertarianism. Most Christians do not understand libertarianism. And most libertarians do not understand Christianity. Hopefully, this blog helps clear up those misunderstanding. Check out my old page at www.thefot.us And remember: When you let people do whatever they want, you get Woodstock. But when you let governments do whatever they want, you get Auschwitz.
