Politics is an extension of economics by other means. War is an extension of politics by other means. Therefore, failed economic policies (lack of economic freedom and free markets) lead to politics. Furthermore, failed political strategies (disregarding the laws, even supreme law, that leaders swear to protect when accepting a political position) unfortunately has the potential to lead us down a dangerous path, as Thomas Sowell wrote in 2007 (Sowell does NOT advocate this - and neither do we - however he merely states that our current path is a dangerous one).
"When I see the worsening degeneracy in our politicians, our media, our educators, and our intelligentsia, I can’t help wondering if the day may yet come when the only thing that can save this country is a military coup."
