[url]http://www.mises.org/fullstory.asp?control=811&FS=Alternative+to+Unending+War+[/url] Excerpt: For big government we now have "The Perfect War," everywhere and nowhere, secret and interminable. The war will justify ever expanding police powers, higher taxes, and more controls over the citizenry. You can see easily how Washington thrives on war. Since Sept 11th, there have been no nasty challenges to government spending and waste, no tedious debates over things like social security "lockboxes," nor "political" attacks upon the Presidency. Congressmen and Think Tank experts get lots of TV time and most everyone jumps to obey government orders and support more regulations. Any groups opposed to American military interventions overseas appear unpatriotic and are marginalized, while press covereage of the war is restricted, using the last Gulf War as a model. Big Government, as Orwell wrote, thrives from unwinnable wars; it doesn't get any better than this. (edited 'cause I can't spell)

Thank you madkwiki, I don't know if this is the case or not, but We all need be vigilent in this regard. This is a mighty big fixation point underwhich to slip too much government for sure. Benjamin
