There
is an aspect of Libertarian Dogma that I must disagree with. This is
the notion that if only the United States refused to get involved with
the struggles of other nations, then, other nations would leave us
alone.

This policy did not work for numerous cultures thoughout
history. Recently, it didn’t work for the Poles, Belgians, Dutch,
Danish, Norwegians, Greeks, Algerians, Egyptians, Indochinese,
Chinese, Monogolians, Phillipinos, Indonesians, Albanians, South
Vietnamese, South Koreans, Tibeteans, Indians, Kuwaitis, Iranians…I
could go on, but what’s the point? Dogmatists pay little attention to
history.

Surely, there is little value in spending blood and
treasure in every little war that comes up. But, anyone interested in
living in freedom must understand that sometimes we must fight. That
sucks, but if you want to be FREE you must fight those that would take
that from you.
