Jacob Hornberger, founder and president of the Future of Freedom Foundation, discusses his article “It’s Again Time to Dismantle the Cold War Military Machine;” how Americans are kept in a perpetual state of fear so massive military budgets seem like a necessity; the Pentagon’s latest make-work project, fighting the War on Drugs in Honduras; how ending drug prohibition would decrease problems with gangs, violence, and public corruption; and the impressive stable of writers at the Future of Freedom Foundation.

MP3 here. (20:35)

Jacob G. Hornberger is founder and president of The Future of Freedom Foundation. He is a regular writer for The Future of Freedom Foundation’s publication, Freedom Daily, and is a co-editor or contributor to the eight books that have been published by the Foundation.

  1. Goodbye to the ZoO 53 States of amrcan:50U$ratheyon+israelX+japanMoto+aramcorptheft and Welcome to Umar justEmpire.

  2. Calling BS. U.S. always instantly finds the next enemy. Bolshevism after WWI, terrorism after Soviets. If I knew more U.S. history, I'd undoubtedly be able to cite earlier examples. (War of 1812?) It's the U.S. way.

  3. Gotta maintain the PIC.

  4. Two excellent ideas in this broadcast (beyond Porter's usually insightful commentary) that I would really support:

    First – getting a group of ex-intell people together to give media sound bites and analysis in realtime to counter and disarm dangerous government disinfo.

    This would slow the USA's descent into irrationality by forcing the corporate media away from their abject credulousness and it would also raise the difficulty of doing false flag attacks. Right now the USA media is a willing enabler of any crazy plot by an 'anonymous senior official'. Exercise due caution with officially-sanctioned "ex-agents" like Scheuer but they do have a place in offering internal dissent.

    Second – doing an 'Invasion of Iraq' theme week on antiwar radio.

    Scott Horton's understanding of the Iraq occupation astounded me when I first began listening to these podcasts and is an asset to capitalize on. Let him get a some good guests on (like Porter) and weave a narrative to counter the dominate media narrative of "it was a well-intentioned mistake that no one really wants to talk about since the Obama face-lift"'. People need a counter-narrative and one that actually has some grounded in fact. People also need reminding of just the sheer terror and horror that was inflicted on Iraq in this ADD culture.

    Sane voices are becoming a precious commodity in North America, thanks for your show.

  5. Paths of Glory is the movie in question. Great Movie.

  6. I thought 'terrorism' was sort of an 'ultimate' … unsolvable 'problem,' inexhaustible supply, make one the hell up if you want, keep it a mystery since surely they'd benefit from our 'secrets' as well, talk vaguely of 'progress,' never define a goal that could end it once acheived… Could've called it a desperate move; the job now is never to let them live it down, never let it be forgotten that they lost all credibility when they chose that 'enemy.'
