Overview

This book was prepared for a meeting of people from across
the political spectrum who oppose war and militarism. The
book presents views from the right, left and radical center, views
that reflect those of many Americans which are not represented
in the political dialogue in Congress or the White House, or the
mainstream media. Throughout American history there have been
times when movements developed that were outside the limited
political dialogue of the two major parties, such as the abolitionists,
the Anti-Imperialist League, the Non-Partisan League, and aspects
of the Old Right and the New Left. Sometimes those movements
have broken through and created paradigm shifting moments. Some
of the materials in this book describe the Populist Movement of the
late 1800s to provide an example of the type of movement that can
influence politics, even though it starts outside of the “acceptable”
political spectrum. Our hope is that this meeting will be the first step
toward building effective advocacy against war and militarism which
pulls in the majority of Americans who recognize that war should
truly be a last resort limited to the real defense of our Nation.
Of all the enemies of true liberty, war is, perhaps, the
most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the
germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from
these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and
taxes are the known instrument for bringing the many
under the domination of the few.—James Madison
