From the Facebook page of Robert Higgs, a photograph of an injured Iraqi boy and an important reminder:

If this is what must to done to “protect my freedoms,” I greatly prefer that my freedoms be left for me to protect. Of course, it’s all pretentious rubbish. The U.S. imperial wars have nothing to do with protecting my freedoms, and indeed they contribute greatly to the destruction of my remaining freedoms while wreaking unthinkable suffering on millions of hapless people abroad.

Also relevant to the propaganda and collective delusions circulated on Memorial Day, see my previous pieces on The Folly of Soldier Worship and The Ism That Won’t Go Away.
