THIS IS THE WORLD OF PRESIDENT TRUMP AS HE BUILDS UP NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY AND
PUTS MORE AND MORE MINEY INTO THE US MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX
Professor Michael Ellis
Club of Budapest Australia
As the sovereign nation-states cannot prevent war, and as war is becoming an
indescribable calamity of ever-longer duration, we are periodically called upon
to sacrifice everything for sheer survival. We cannot say that our individual
freedom is guaranteed if every twenty years all our families are torn apart and
we are forced to go forth to kill or be killed.
We cannot say that our welfare and economic freedom are guaranteed when every
twenty years we have to stop production of consumer goods and waste all our
energies and resources in the manufacture of the tools of war.
We cannot say that we have freedom of speech and the press when every twenty
years conditions force censorship upon us.
We cannot say that private property is guaranteed if every twenty years
gigantic public debts and inflation destroy our savings*
Defenders of national sovereignty will argue that all these restrictions and
suppressions of individual liberty are emergency measures, necessitated by the
exigencies of war and cannot be regarded as normal.
Of course, they are emergency measures. But as the nation-state structure, far
from being able to prevent war, is the only and ultimate cause of the recurrent
international wars, and as the aftermath of each of these international wars is
simultaneously the prelude to the next violent clash between the nations,
eighty or ninety per cent of our lives are spent in times of "emergency."
Under existing conditions, periods of emergency are the "normal" and not the
"abnormal" If we want to stick to the obsolete conception
