Practicing the Principles of Non-Intervention -- At Home and Abroad.

Richard Ebeling emails:

Dear Bob,

I have posted a new article on Northwood University's blog, "In Defense of Capitalism & Human Progress," with the title, "Practicing the Principles of Non-Intervention -- At Home and Abroad."

At a time when many are advocating possible military intervention in Libya by U.S. and Western European Powers, I explain and defend the principles of non-intervention in foreign affairs on both moral and practical grounds, and on the same basis that the classical liberal argues against political intervention in the affairs of one's own countrymen at home.

Instead, I call for the de-politicization, the privatization of foreign policy, with the free individual at liberty to support foreign causes that he may consider deserving of his assistance in various ways. But the State should not be involved in such foreign affairs.

I thought you might find it of possible interest.

The full post is here.
