War, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing! ~ link ~ As a libertarian, I continually struggle with the widespread acceptance, and in many cases, love of war by Americans. Since I detest aggression, I therefore despise war. The only legitimate force that is acceptable in my opinion is that for self-defense of life, liberty, or property, and self-defense should not allow for any use of force that extends past defense to aggression. It is irrelevant to me whether one’s defense is protected individually or collectively, so long as the non-aggression principle is followed.

Your Worst Enemy, the State ~ link ~ In my opinion, government is at best, tolerated because there is no other recognizable option available at the time. At worst, it is an evil and tyrannical overlord of the individual, never ceasing in its desire for power, money, total control, brutality, war, and imperialism. This opinion obviously does not serve as a recommendation for any governing system, with the one exception of peaceful anarchy, or a society without the State.
The American Empire is just a tool, an expendable vehicle. Its coming destruction will allow the Money Power's to achieve its goal of global despotism.
The American Empire indeed has been very important to the Money Power and many people naturally consider the two to be identical. But they are not. In fact: the American Empire is the Money Power's main competitor for World Power and the last obstacle in their march to World Government.
The Grand Strategy is to have the American Empire overstretch and destroy itself by taking on the Eurasian Powers. Most conspiracy researchers would agree with this statement, but in real time it's always difficult to grasp the Money Power's elaborate schemes.
As a result, people all too easily equate opposition to the American Empire with opposition to the New World Order.
Researchers publishing the result of their work in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition have found that eating tree nuts (almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamias, pecans, pine nuts, pistachios and walnuts) was associated with higher levels of high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (good HDL cholesterol) and lower levels of C-reactive protein, a marker for inflammation which can lead to a variety of chronic diseases including heart disease.
