Bettina Bien Greaves

Where there is life there is hope. And the liberal free traders live, are speaking up, using every opportunity to point out, as Mises did in his many works, that the conflict philosophy is a revolt against rationalism, economics, and utilitarian social philosophy and at the same time a revolt against freedom, democracy, and representative government.

War is futile. It is imperative that the conflict philosophy, with the envy and resentment it spawns, be exposed as the leading cause of war and totalitarianism. The advantages of peaceful social cooperation ought to be explained by every available means to ever wider and wider audiences.

— Bettina Bien Greaves, Why War? [April 1994]
