This weekend we feature part of a talk by our old friend Dr. Robert Higgs, a longtime Senior Fellow at the Mises Institute and libertarian stalwart. Bob, author of the famous Crisis and Leviathan, recently spoke at Mises University on the critical topic of war and the growth of the state. He considers war the "master key" that enables government to grow in size, scope, and power. This poignant speech is not to be missed by anyone who cares about peace and liberty.
