Americans Against Empire

  • Justin Raimondo argues that "even the most cursory glance at our foreign policy since World War II, and particularly since the end of the cold war and the commencement of our eternal 'war on terrorism,' reveals the unmitigated racism at the heart of the way we divide the world up into friends and enemies" — Race and Empire.

  • "Continued U.S. economic sluggishness, induced by a massive national debt in excess of $15 trillion," writes Ivan Eland, "should be causing soul-searching in the American foreign policy community about which unnecessary alliance commitments can be shed to save money" — Save Money by Ending Costly Alliances.

  • "History shows that the use of forced nudity by a state that is descending into fascism is powerfully effective in controlling and subduing populations," writes Naomi Wolf, reminding us that "[f]orcing people to undress is the first step in breaking down their sense of individuality and dignity and reinforcing their powerlessness" — How the US Uses Sexual Humiliation as a Political Tool To Control the Masses.

  • "In the debates," says Ralph Nader of Ron Paul, "only he called out the American Empire's meddling in the business of countless nations around the world" — The 100 Most Influential People in the World.
