“We know that other great crises will come. Whether they will be occasioned by foreign wars, economic collapse, or rampant terrorism, no one can predict with assurance. Yet in one form or another, great crises will surely come again, as they have from time to time throughout all human history. When they do, governments almost certainly will gain new powers over economic and social affairs. Everything that I have argued and documented in the preceding chapters points toward this conclusion. For those who cherish individual liberty and a free society, the prospect is deeply disheartening.”

~Robert Higgs, Crisis and Leviathan: Critical Episodes in the Growth of American Government, page 262.

“An important, powerful, and profoundly disturbing book.”

~James M. Buchanan, Nobel Laureate, in Journal of Economic History


“A blockbuster of a book, one of the most important of the last decade. It is that rare and wondrous combination: scholarly and hard-hitting, lucidly written and libertarian as well.”

~Murray N. Rothbard in Liberty


“A superb history. …Two hundred years after the establishment of the American Constitution, I can think of no more important reading than Mr. Higgs’ book, aside from the Constitution itself.”

~R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., Former Editor-in-Chief, The American Spectator

“…This seminal treatise in the history of ideas demonstrates what has come to be known as the Higgs thesis: that government grows in periods of crisis, for example, war and depression. He demonstrates this with a detailed look at twentieth century economic history.

Higgs’s thesis is so compelling that it has become the dominant paradigm for understanding the so-called ratchet effect: government grows during crisis and then retrenches afterwards, but not to the same level as before.

This book is absolutely essential for anyone who seeks to understand the dynamics of government growth and the loss of liberty. The contents of this volume include:

  • Part I. Framework
    • 1. The Sources of Big Government: A Critical Survey of Hypotheses
    • 2. How Much Has the Government Grown? Conventional Measures and an Alternative View
    • 3. On Ideology as an Analytical Concept in the Study of Political Economy
    • 4. Crisis, Bigger Government, and Ideological Change: Toward an Understanding of the Ratchet
  • Part II. History

    • 6. The Progressive Era: A Bridge to Modern Times
    • 7. The Political Economy of War, 1916-1918
    • 8. The Great Depression: “An Emergency More Serious than War”

“Since 1945, liberals and conservatives, Democrats and Republicans have come into and out of power as the oscillations of a pendulum, but regardless of the political swings the fixed point has remained a fundamental abrogation of private economic rights. Constantly vulnerable to unsettling governmental intervention–whether wage-price controls, energy controls, labor-market controls, environmental controls, international trade controls, or any number of other intrusions into once-private economic affairs–the postwar economy has staggered forward. All shades of politicians have preferred the powers available to them in a mixed economy to the conceivable alternatives. Without the powerful ideological and constitutional restraints that operated for over a century after the birth of the United States–restraints destroyed during the national emergencies of 1916-1945–modern governmental authorities may think deeply and often from the heady wellsprings of political power and social control.”

~Robert Higgs, Crisis and leviathan, page 257.

Crisis and Leviathan: Observations amid the Current Episode

by Robert Higgs

“…Since the early twentieth century, periods of real or perceived national emergency have been “critical episodes” in the growth of government’s size, scope, and power in the United States and in many other countries. Hence, the concise conceptualization: Crisis and Leviathan (the main title of my 1987 book on the growth of government in the United States from the late nineteenth century to the late twentieth century).

In the past century, the first five such critical episodes in the United States were: World War I; the Great Depression; World War II; a multi-faceted set of crises associated with the civil-rights revolution and the Vietnam War, roughly coincident with the presidencies of Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard M. Nixon; and the post 9/11 events associated with the so-called War on Terror and the U.S. attacks on and occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq. We are now amid another such critical episode, which springs from the housing bust that began in 2006, the economic recession that began late in 2007, and the financial debacle that reached its climax in September 2008.

The current troubles are complex and raise a multitude of questions. Many books and articles no doubt will be written to analyze these various issues in scholarly depth and detail, and certainly anything we might say today must be regarded as preliminary, at best. I focus here on a few aspects of the present episode that relate closely to my own research on the growth of government, a field of study to which I have returned again and again over the past thirty years. …”

Crime, Inc.— The Movement Toward Global Government

“…Twenty years ago, when anyone talked about an agenda that would ultimately lead to a global government, people scoffed at the possibility, ascribing it as a “conspiracy theory.” For even longer than that, The John Birch Society has been warning us about such a threat to American sovereignty, and while they’ve acquired a following of their own, most of their warnings were unheeded. Now that the United States of America is on its way to becoming the United States of the World, people are starting to pay attention, but is it too late?

Over the past few months, Glenn Beck has also made clear his belief that not only is global government a possibility, but that the process of achieving it is near fruition if not stopped in its tracks. Ironically, just one year ago, Beck refused believe such a theory. In his 2009 book Common Sense, Beck wrote, “It’s not just the political class who has mastered the art of deception. There are other potentially deadly masters who will seek to exploit your frustration and sense of desperation. Many will warn you of government tyranny; they’ll talk of secret societies, vast conspiracies, shadow governments…. There is no global conspiracy playing out.” Within the past year for Beck, however, evidence to the contrary has become insurmountable. It is amazing, and terrifying, what a little bit of research can uncover.

Fortunately, Glenn Beck has been informing his audience about this global scheme, which he has named “Crime, Inc.” Every day, his viewers are left feeling overwhelmed and frightened by what they learn, not because he is a fearmonger, but because he allows the viewers to hear the truth right from the horses’ mouths.

Crime Inc. is centered around the Chicago Climate Exchange and involves major participants like Barack Obama, Joel Rogers (top organizer for the Progressive movement in the United States), Al Gore, Goldman Sachs, Van Jones, Maurice Strong (head of the United Nations Environmental Program), Union Leader Andy Stearn, Anita Dunn (Senior Communications Strategist for Obama), and John Holdren (Advisor to Obama for Science and Technology). These are just to name a few. …”

Crime Inc.

by Chris Bounds on May 6, 2010

“…In short, you have The Joyce Foundation (Obama, Jarrett) , GIM (Al Gore, Goldman Sachs executives), and Goldman Sachs giving money to fund the CCX.  Then Franklin Raines with his patent on carbon trading technology and millions he siphoned through Fannie Mae, uses Enterprise Community Partners to funnel money from TJF to the ECC.  The ECC, whose goal is  the “rapidly greening of American’s cities” has Joel Rogers as a board member, who is connected to Barak Obama and the White House.

What does Joel Rogers have to do with all of this?  Well, Joel Rogers may very well be the ‘Wizard’ behind the entire modern progressive movement.   He is the Director of the Center of Wisconsin Strategy (COWS) Director, a progressive think tank.  He founded the New Party (a Marxist coalition that endorsed Barak Obama in 1996, since reorganized under the Working Families Party, a front for ACORN) and the Apollo Alliance.  He has been claimed to be responsible for every policy decision in the White House.  Watch what Van Jones (self-proclaimed communist, former Green Czar for Obama), Barak Obama, and even Joel Rogers himself have to say: …”

Synopsis

“…David Kilcullen is one of the world’s most influential experts on counterinsurgency and modern warfare. A Senior Counterinsurgency Advisor to General David Petraeus in Iraq, his vision of war dramatically influenced America’s decision to rethink its military strategy in Iraq and implement “the surge.”

Now, in The Accidental Guerrilla, Kilcullen provides a remarkably fresh perspective on the War on Terror. Kilcullen takes us “on the ground” to uncover the face of modern warfare, illuminating both the big global war (the “War on Terrorism”) and its relation to the associated “small wars” across the globe: Iraq, Afghanistan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Chechnya, Pakistan and North Africa. Kilcullen sees today’s conflicts as a complex pairing of contrasting trends: local social networks and worldwide movements; traditional and postmodern culture; local insurgencies seeking autonomy and a broader pan-Islamic campaign. He warns that America’s actions in the war on terrorism have tended to conflate these trends, blurring the distinction between local and global struggles and thus enormously complicating our challenges. Indeed, the US had done a poor job of applying different tactics to these very different situations, continually misidentifying insurgents with limited aims and legitimate grievances (whom he calls “accidental guerrillas”) as part of a coordinated worldwide terror network. We must learn how to disentangle these strands, develop strategies that deal with global threats, avoid local conflicts where possible, and win them where necessary.

Colored with gripping battlefield experiences that range from the jungles and highlands of Southeast Asiato the mountains of the Afghanistan-Pakistan border to the dusty towns of the Middle East, The Accidental Guerrilla will, quite simply, change the way we think about war. This much anticipated book will be a must read for everyone concerned about the war on terror. …”

During 2007 he served in Iraq as Senior Counterinsurgency Adviser, Multi-National Force – Iraq — a civilian position on the personal staff of U.S. Army General David Petraeus, responsible for planning and executing the 2007-08 Joint Campaign Plan which drove the Iraq War troop surge of 2007.

Kilcullen is also an advisor to the United States; British and Australian governments; the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and several private sector institutions (including the Australian-based Noetic Corporation), on counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency issues. A former Senior Fellow of the Center for a New American Security, he is now on the CNAS’s Advisory Board.[1]

Biography

Kilcullen has a doctorate in politics from the University of New South Wales at the Australian Defence Force Academy, focusing on the effects of guerrilla warfare on non-state political systems in traditional societies. His thesis is titled “The political consequences of military operations in Indonesia 1945-99: a fieldwork analysis of the political power-diffusion effects of guerilla conflict”. He applied ethnographic fieldwork methods and involved extended residential fieldwork that focused on the political power-diffusion effects of successful and failed counter-insurgency operations on traditional societies in Indonesia and East Timor. He has served in several counterinsurgency and guerrilla warfare campaigns in Southeast Asia and the Middle East — including tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan — as well as in peacekeeping and peace enforcement operations.

While at the US State Department in 2005-06 he served as Chief Strategist in the Office of the Coordinator for Counterterrorism, and has worked in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, the Horn of Africa and Southeast Asia. He has also written several papers on the Iraqi insurgency after the fall of Saddam Hussein.[citation needed]

He is one of a group of civilian specialists and military officers, including Colonel H.R. McMaster and others, who were seconded in late 2006 to the personal staff of General Petraeus to oversee the specialized counterinsurgency aspects of the Iraq campaign in 2007.[2] He previously contributed to the new United States Counterinsurgency Field Manual FM 3-24, published in December 2006, of which he authored a chapter entitled “A Guide to Action”. His book The Accidental Guerrilla: Fighting Small Wars in the Midst of a Big One was published in early 2009. (See External Links.) …”

The progressive radical socialists of both the Democratic and Republican parties have always used war to expand the state and limit liberty.

The time has come to bring all the troops home from around the world.

The people of  the world including Germany,  Japan, and South Korea can defend their own nations.

Bring the troops home now.

Start with General Stan McChrystal and the troops in Afghanistan.

Obama: U.S. security is still at stake

AFGHAN WAR TO ESCALATE
30,000 more troops; pullout begins mid-2011

“…Adding 30,000 U.S. troops to the roughly 70,000 that are in Afghanistan now amounts to most of what Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, the commander of U.S. and NATO forces there, requested at the end of August. But by setting a date for when he will begin removing U.S. troops, scheduled to number about 100,000 by next summer, Obama is effectively holding McChrystal to the urgent timeline that the general laid out in a bleak assessment of the situation.

Obama’s simultaneous escalation of the war effort and presentation of an exit plan reflects the divisions that emerged within his administration during the strategy review and the difficult politics he faces in selling his plan at home and abroad. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates and other senior officials who participated in that review, sometimes in opposition to one another, watched his speech from the front row of the academy’s Eisenhower Hall.

As details of his strategy emerged Tuesday, some Republicans accused Obama of aiding the Taliban insurgency by setting a date to begin a withdrawal, even though administration officials said the pace will be determined by the country’s security and political stability. Democrats criticized Obama for an expensive, if time-limited, expansion of an unpopular conflict at a time of economic hardship at home. …”
