LRC pick
Parents, bar the door to military recruiters
The last time we went to war in defense of our own freedom was in 1941.
Not so much. Neither the Germans nor the Japanese had the plans nor the ability to invade the US. Britain was of course defending its freedom. So were the Russians who joined the Germans to fight FDR’s and Churchill’s ally, Joseph Stalin (who killed more people than Hitler did). Ultimately the war lessened freedom both in the US (thanks to an expanding and more militarized government) and in Britain (thanks to postwar socialism) and advanced Bolshevism in the medium term, handing the Soviets half of Catholic Europe.
