The most despicable group of political gangsters in America want to destroy this site, and everything it stands for. Who are they? The neoconservatives.
Originating in Trotskyism, through their cells in New York City in the 1930s, this bunch now controls much of the American right, on which they have fastened their ideology of constant war, the police state, the welfare state, militarism, and Soviet-like thought control. The Trots sought, and seek, world power for themselves, through bloody world revolution. Trotsky even sought to have the state determine who could marry and who could have children, long before Hitler, to create a new, subservient man.
If you read their own books, they are open about their devotion to the "noble lie," an idea they got from Plato. It is a virtue, they claim, to lie to the people, so that the right characters stay in power, under the guidance of the right advisors.
The neocons are our opposites: pro-war, pro-state, anti-market. They long for the subjugation of the whole world to the American power elite, with themselves as the philosopher kings. And they lust to destroy anyone who disagrees with them.
Since this ideological grouplet has lots of influence in the media, the government, big business, and big academia, why should they care about a site like LRC? It’s true that we do have massive traffic, and many followers all over the world, as we carry on the work of Murray Rothbard. But again, why would they worry?
