I almost scored a perfect score on the new “Are You an Austrian?” quiz at the Mises Institute. I was not consciously trying to get a high score, but mark what I truly thought was the correct, rational answer.
I missed the next-to-last question, which dealt with the consequence of national defense, because I didn’t read my selection all the way through. The last bit I didn’t read said, in part, “ If diplomacy fails, the general welfare of society may increase as a result of attaining important national objectives via warfare. Defensive wars are always justified. Offensive wars may be good in some circumstances.”
