June 9, 2016—On this episode of The Libertarian Angle, Jacob Hornberger and Richard Ebeling of the Future of Freedom Foundation continue their series on World War I and World War II. Check out the past episodes here, here, and here.
“It’s sold as the good war. It’s the one intervention that interventionists really point to and say, yeah, look at how favorable World War II was,” Hornberger said.
Both co-hosts focused on the US-Soviet Union alliance, highlighting how Joseph Stalin’s mass murder of tens of millions was less important to the US than its entangling alliance with the Soviet regime.
“[President Franklin D. Roosevelt] told his cabinet members, you know, every time I meet Uncle Joe – that’s how he referred to Stalin, Uncle Joe – I like him a bit more and possibly because there’s something of the Christian gentleman in him,” Ebeling revealed.
