Adapted from “Imperialism and the Logic of War Making.”

War is the outcome of class conflict inherent in the political relationship — the relationship between ruler and ruled, parasite and producer, tax-consumer and taxpayer. The parasitic class makes war with purpose and deliberation in order to conceal and ratchet up their exploitation of the much larger productive class, writes Joe Salerno.

This audio Mises Daily is narrated by Dianna Keiler.
