‘How the War Party Works’: RPI’s Daniel McAdams on Mises Weekends

by | Apr 22, 2016


Washington, D.C. is a foreign policy bubble, where big money rules and coloring outside the interventionist lines is forbidden. Does the rest of the country buy into the idea that we must run the world? RPI Director Daniel McAdams speaks with his former colleague in Ron Paul’s Congressional office, now President of the Mises Institute, Jeff Deist on just how war rules the roost among the Beltway powerbrokers. What happens to young and idealistic newly-elected Members of Congress to turn them into parrots war party propaganda? How are the sucked into the machine? They are sucked in by the “deep state” — the permanent government. How do the neocons like Bill Kristol continue to dominate the airwaves when they are so consistently wrong? Listen to the whole interview here.
