Anthony Gregory, Research Editor at the Independent Institute, discusses his article “Seventy Years of Infamy” about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor; why WWII doesn’t deserve to be remembered as “the good war;” the birth of the military-industrial complex; how the war on terror is killing our constitution and civil liberties; and strategies for stopping future wars before they start.

  1. SYSTEMIC PROBLEM — 236 LONG YEARS AGO

    Going back only 70 years, this takes us just back to when I was barely out of diapers sitting on the police chief’s desk and most upset crying, “Let me go, my mom will throw coffee grounds in your face!”

    Truth is, 236 years ago a bunch of scoundrel slave owners created a fiction constitution most perfect for a fake morality that would last for eternity. For at the start the lower half of society was locked in bond slavery and chain slavery, fast forward to today and we see that 49% of America has no education but some high school — and from birth to death its economical slavery.

    Its like when one of our first presidents was in the process of sending an invasion army into Florida for the purpose of a genocide holocaust upon the indigenous tribe that owned and ruled the nation of Florida for thousands of years, whereupon he proclaimed,

    “There is security only in expansion.”

  3. John, it goes further back yet, back to the ethnic cleansing of the real Americans, the American Indians.
