PostSubject: A Voluntaristic Approach to Promoting American Values   Thu Dec 14, 2017 3:53 pm

“A dictatorship is a gang devoted to looting the effort of the productive citizens of its own country. When a statist ruler exhausts his own country’s economy, he attacks his neighbors … Statism NEEDS war; a free country does not. Statism survives by looting; a free country survives by production.” — Ayn Rand, “The Roots of War,” 1966 —

WTE3 Column #76 Illustration -- Uncle Sam and Lady LibertyLast week, I discussed the means by which our military has become “an often-aggressive vehicle for interference in international affairs,” and said that it’s time we “return to a policy of strict self-defense as needed” instead (“Self-defense is the only valid motive for military operations,” WTE, Dec. 3).

What would such policies amount to, in practice?

■ Foreign Aid: Today, we spend billions of dollars yearly on military and economic foreign aid to other countries, and for what purpose? To have a “good” guy in power? As we’ve seen, that hasn’t worked out well for us, as our geopolitical engineering has always been rife with unintended consequences.

No, in addition to draining our treasury, foreign aid merely props up the reign of the thugs instead, who use our money to entrench their own rule; the poor peasants certainly never see any of it. We need to end it all, and the faster the better … For why would an allegedly “free” nation seek to plunder the wealth of its own citizens in order to fund the operations of sundry collectivist despots abroad?
