THE SOAPBOX
Letters + The Internet Speaks
What happened to all the angry letters?

STRUGGLE SESSION
Dismantling the School-to-Soldier Pipeline
Inside the fight against JROTC, a Pentagon program that targets working-class teenagers at public schools.

UNEVEN & COMBINED
The Armored Archipelago
The United States has 800 military installations in dozens of countries around the world. They all must be dismantled.

TRANSITIONS
Death Drive
Eighty years of American nuclear weapons policy.

The foreign policy establishment is responding to Trump-era brutalities by demanding more, not less, aggression and empire.

CANON FODDER
Ike & Hayek

Eisenhower’s warning about the “military-industrial complex” marked an era when the American right feared militarism could bankrupt the country and plunge it into socialism.

In 1992, the Cold War was over. But the Defense Department was already planning for the next one.

DOSSIER
Terms of War

On HBO’s new tragicomedy, a veteran plumbs the depths of his combat record for the stage — but ends up painting a portrait of middle-American desolation.

Hollywood and the Pentagon
Some of your favorite movies were probably made with help from the Department of Defense.

Who Cares What Army?
Though their time as a band was brief, the Monks represent a “what if” of the convergence between GI resistance and the 1960s counterculture.

WAYS OF SEEING
The GI Bill Made Art
The GI Bill is proof: if people have access to education and the means to live, they’ll create meaningful art.

THE WORST ESTATE
Selling Tony Blair’s War
Working people knew the war in Iraq was a mistake — but they didn’t have a media to speak for them.

GIRONDINS
Elizabeth Warren’s Lean Green Fighting Machine
The way to cut military climate emissions is to scale back the United States’ enormous empire. Elizabeth Warren has no plan for that.

GIRONDINS
UN Peacekeepers Are Not Your Friends
Even for the United Nations, bombs and troops are increasingly the solution to problems created by an unjust global economy.

THERMIDOR
Camera in One Hand, Gun in the Other
With its celebration of mercs rampaging through Africa, no healthy society could produce a magazine like Soldier of Fortune.

Finding the Lesser Evil
