In General What Americans are “Memorializing” on Memorial Day is Wars of Conquest

By Thomas DiLorenzo


  1. War Is A Racket

    By Major General Smedley Butler

    War Is A Racket

    WAR is a racket. It always has been.

    It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the
    most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the
    only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the
    losses in lives.

    A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not
    what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small "inside"
    group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of
    the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few
    people make huge fortunes.

    1. It's the racket that enabled white people to populate the Americas. Feel free to pack up your stuff and leave any time you want.

    2. Sigh. Are big-government apologists still pushing that juvenile and intellectually vacuous theme of "If you don't like it, get out"?

      One can oppose or criticize policy honestly without going so far as to pack up and leave, just as honestly as one can praise or honor the soldiers without taking up arms and fighting by their side.

      What is your point Mr. Wolfgang? That every opinion must be all-in, backed by concrete action, or it is invalid? Are you familiar with the type of ad hominem known as pseudorefutation?

      And where, pray tell, would you have Anonymous (May 26, 2014 at 2:08 PM) go? If opposition to a past genocide renders a location unacceptable to the objector, there likely isn't a place on earth fit to live.
