"Universal values, enforced locally"

A frase é de Murray N. Rothbard, o campeão do não-intervencionismo e intelectual pelo renascimento da Old-Right, materializada agora a nível político, por Ron Paul. E serve bem para apresentar esta entrevista com Thomas E. Woods Jr:

"Actually, historians of the anti-imperial movement of the late 1800s and early 1900s have noted that it was primarily made up of conservatives. These were people who believed they were conserving the old America, which "goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy." We're talking about people like former president Grover Cleveland -- and there were other former presidents involved. Mark Twain was in there, as well.


In the 19th century, that's what everyone assumed. Henry Clay was voicing that when he said, in effect, 'We're not doing the world any good when we bankrupt ourselves fighting wars all over the place. We will extinguish the great beacon that we are.' He said we need to unfurl the banner of freedom here and show the world how it's done. But ultimately other people have to fight for their own freedom.

As Lord Byron said, "Who would be free, themselves must strike the blow.""
