The Mises Institute’s Jeffrey Tucker interviews professor and best selling author, Tom Woods, on the topic of Tom’s anthology, ‘We Who Dared to Say No to War: American Antiwar Writing from 1812 to Now.’ Tom makes extensive use of American history in the interview, which he uses to highlight underlying philosophical truths about the nature of war and the State.
In the interview, Tom comments on Rothbard’s War, Peace, and the State, which you can read at the link provided. Tom says Rothbard’s article is, “…one of the life changing, mind changing, essays that Rothbard wrote. It makes you understand and think about what war actually is.”
Recorded in Auburn, Alabama, at the Ludwig von Mises Institute, 21 July 2010.
