    Symposium with Ron Paul: War and Peace in the Age of Trump
    Ron Paul and Lew Rockwell
    April 8, 2017 - Lake Jackson, Texas

    Join us!

    The late Murray Rothbard thought war and peace was the most important libertarian issue. He argued that foreign policy should reflect Thomist values of just war doctrine, and therefore we should demand a coherent justification for any military action taken in our name. By this measure, US foreign policy in the 20th and early 21st centuries has been a disaster. Interventionism, nation building, and wars of choice have failed to defend, much less advance, American interests.

    Can Trump change any of this? Can he stand against the entrenched mindset that American must intervene in conflicts around the globe? Can he face down the foreign policy establishment and defense industry cronyism, which rely on neoconservative doctrines of pre-emptive war and nation-building? Can Secretary of State Rex Tillerson change the tenor, if not the reality, of our policies? And can a new Cold War with Russia be avoided?

    Dr. Ron Paul, David Stockman, Eric Margolis, Lew Rockwell, and Daniel McAdams will assess the prospects for peace in the Trump years. The event takes place in Lake Jackson, Texas, at the Dow Academic Center of Brazosport College—about 45 minutes south of Hobby Airport in Houston. 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. including brunch with cash bar serving bloody marys and mimosas.

    Nearby hotels include Holiday Inn Express Clute-Lake Jackson and Hampton Inn Clute-LakeJackson.

    And Mimosa's.

    “We have to start winning wars again,” President Trump told the nation’s governors today. No, Mr. President, America must stop military interventionism. As you have said America spent trillions and trillions of dollars overseas when we should have been spending it here at home, to create jobs and rebuild infrastructure, for example. The long-term cost of US interventions in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria and elsewhere may reach $6 TRILLION when everything is totaled. US deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan approach 7,000, with tens of thousands permanently injured. Civilian casualties in Iraq alone exceed ONE MILLION, in Afghanistan hundreds of thousands.

    A $54 billion increase in the Pentagon budget will not help us win wars. It will help us get deeper into wars which will bring increased threats to our national security. The wars you win are the ones you don’t start. - DEnnis Kucinich, http://ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/peace-and-prosperity/2017/february/28/winning-wars/
    "Let it not be said that we did nothing." - Dr. Ron Paul. "Stand up for what you believe in, even if you are standing alone." - Sophie Magdalena Scholl
    "War is the health of the State." - Randolph Bourne "Freedom is the answer. ... Now, what's the question?" - Ernie Hancock.
