Gary Chartier: Taking A Stand For PeaceThe foreign policy of the Obama administration as a case study of reasons to oppose the permanent-warfare state--from an anarchist perspective. Modern states are profoundly dangerous because they persist in making war and attacking civil liberties in the name of national security. The temptations of imperial war-making seem to be irresistible, since they appear equally attractive to Democrats and Republicans alike. Taking a stand for peace means rejecting the imperial ambitions of both major parties.
