The Case for Optimism

•, By Justin Raimondo
 What’s troubling is that many anti-interventionists seem to be in a permanent state of depression: given the history of the past decade or so, the interventionist bias of the “mainstream” media, and the enormous resources the War Party has at its disposal, they have convinced themselves the cause of peace is practically hopeless, and that only a miracle can prevent the next major conflict.

The reasoning behind this kind of pessimism is specious. To begin with, human beings have free will: no human outcome is inevitable. There’s the theory that humans are hardwired for violence, and that it’s just “human nature” to engage in mass murder every couple of years or so: I don’t buy it. If that were true, we’d still be living in the Stone Age.
