War Is Bad

Jump to: navigation, search

Libertarians like to pretend that only they oppose war and that they oppose all war. Almost all people oppose war, and everybody has a point at which they will engage in war, even if only for defense. But of course this simple claim ignores whether the alternative to war is worse or whether the war is inescapable.
