Welcome to Liberrants, a blog dedicated to editorials, discussions, and studies of all things libertarian. Don't let the title mislead you; it's merely my attempt to be creative in describing myself as a "hopeful curmudgeon" who embraces the goal of the free, peaceful, economically vibrant society envisioned by America's founding fathers. Jump in! Contribute! Enjoy!

A critically thinking curmudgeon whose goal, in addition to creatively venting about the imperfect world in which we live, is to induce critical thinking in others. The ultimate goal is to help bring about a peaceful world in which we can all live in freedom.

A Quote, and My Contention of It

Quoted on today’s

War is too serious a matter to entrust to military men. – Georges Clemenceau

I disagree with Monsieur Clemenceau on this. It is isolated, self-deluded, usually megalomaniac civilian politicians (a group to which Clemenceau belonged), not soldiers, who have been responsible for starting most of history’s most devastating conflicts. I actually believe that if the decision to go to war were left up to the soldiers who have fought them in the past, war would disappear altogether as way of conflict resolution or aggression.

Just a thought.
