Travis, the trashing of the D.C. Temple to Statism and Imperialism (a.k.a. the Lincoln Memorial) reminded me of the concluding words of Murray Rothbard’s essay, “Just War”:

“We must always remember, we must never forget, we must put in the dock and hang higher than Haman, those who, in modern times, opened the Pandora’s Box of genocide and the extermination of civilians: Sherman, Grant, and Lincoln.  Perhaps, some day, their statues, like Lenin’s in Russia, will be toppled and melted down, their insignias and battle flags will be desecrated, their war songs tossed into the fire.”

(Note: The Biblical figure Haman was a 5th century noble who was hanged after a failed attempt to exterminate all the Jews in Persia).
