It tells the national security elite how to keep the public from balking at endless wars, and at the endless costs of the military-industrial complex. Well, actually, we’re publishing it as a book, so it’s not so secret. And, oh, by the way, the book is actually a satire! Join us for this episode of Independent Conversations, where we talk with the authors of this satirical book—uh, that is, this secret memo.

Making war is one of the things that government does best, but sometimes even the deep-state elites need a little help figuring out how to invade other countries, kill their people, and plunder their resources, all while propping up American defense contractors and keeping the voting public complacent. Thankfully, a handy how-to manual for all your global domination needs has just hit the shelves. Matt Kibbe sits down with authors Christopher Coyne and Abigail Hall to discuss their new satirical book, How to Run Wars, which uses humor to shine a light on the bellicose evils of the perpetual war machine and those who seek to profit from it.

Some 88 years ago, an economist and concerned citizen by the name of Bruce Knight published a book, How to Run a War, to warn essentially, about Washington’s ability to marshal all of the tools of the federal government to mobilize the nation for war. Written in a highly ironic tone, Knight was drawing on the history of the first World War in anticipation of the growing push for conflict in Europe, which as we know, happened, and probably beyond Knight’s wildest nightmares, in terms of costs and scope and existential crisis.

Our guests today, professors Christopher Coyne and Abigail Hall, have co-authored two previous books on the issue of the national security state, including Manufacturing Militarism and Tyranny Comes Home. Their new one is a fresh take on Knight’s 1936 book, entitled How to Run Wars, which is being released this week. It is as pertinent as ever, as national security elites know they must control the narrative, the media, dissent, the purse strings and more to ensure the public’s support for Washington’s security policies — no matter how wrong they are.
