An Open Letter to the Peace Movement
A hat tip to Don Stacy via one of my favorite web sites Strike-The-Root for recycling a terrific open letter written by Roderick Long in the days leading up to the Iraq War, pointing out that a consistent peace activist ought to embrace the principle of anarchy. The idea that People in Other Countries Are Not Our Property is a subset of the broader idea that Other People Are Not Your Property (Long’s wonderful formulation of the basic anarchist idea). Check out the Long archives at Strike-The-Root for more gems. Long himself blogs at Austro-Athenian Empire.
