Regular folks who hate war
This stuff is too important to be abandoned to the modern left

Historically
middle America has traditionally been the largest and more effective force of resistance to the imperial Garrison state.
Something Carl Oglesby of SDS understood at his best. Again a tragedy of the 1960s is the Old Right and New Left didn’t get together.

Also, in World War I
the left was on the side of the war, with the hope that the state would try an experiment in national economic planning, crush old-world forms of government abroad, and usher in progressive policies such as income taxes, central banking, and presidential dictatorship.
Today’s LRC pick.
