"I have a profound respect for a principled pacifism and for anybody whose desire to avoid war at all costs is coupled with a robust peace-making agenda. There are valid and important criticisms of U.S. actions and motivations abroad from people who loathe war and are willing to work to stop it.
But that’s not what the libertarians are doing. They’re not pacifists. They’re non-interventionists. They offer a stomach-turning false pacifism that only pretends to care about “Muslim men, women and children” for long enough to advance isolationist policy goals. Their willingness so stand against any particular war ends the moment the U.S. disentangles itself. Their mantra isn’t “Peace now.” It’s “We can’t be fucked to care about other countries.”
When you believe in peace for the sake of peace, we’ll talk. Until then, let’s not bullshit each other."
Squashed: “LIBERTARIANS, STOP TRYING TO PLAY THE PACIFIST CARD. YOU ARE NOT PACIFISTS.”
They can’t be fucked to care about other countries. Also, “countries” can be easily replaced for “things that are not me”.
