The American Attitude Toward War

In 1943, libertarian founding mother Rose Wilder Lane in The Discovery of Freedom could write rightly that "like most Americans I had taken it for granted that no one wants war," that "Americans hate war because it kills men and destroys property," and that war was "an active, destructive denial of the facts of human life, the facts of individual liberty and human brotherhood."

Could she write the same thing today? I think she could. I have hope in our people. We are still fundamentally the same. She could write this, and it would still be true, but the media, controlled by you-know-who, would do their best to bury it (and maybe her).
