It’s about damn time. Yes­ter­day, Pres­i­dent Obama announced that he will per­son­ally par­tic­i­pate in deliv­er­ing a dev­as­tat­ing blow to ISIS. This news came at the same time as United States mil­i­tary sources con­firmed that the Amer­i­can Air Force could not take out ISIS oil tankers because we ran out of bul­lets.

Will Senator Cruz Follow Reagan’s Lead on the NSA?

No Barbarians at the Gates of Paris

In the wake of the Paris attacks, his­to­rian Niall Fer­gu­son has sug­gested that West­ern Civ­i­liza­tion is now repris­ing the story of the Roman Empire in the 5th cen­tury A.D., with Mus­lims cast in the roles of the invad­ing bar­bar­ians. But his recent invo­ca­tion of “The Fall of Rome” is a rhetor­i­cal maneu­ver and not a seri­ous attempt to engage with the his­tory of the late Roman Empire: rather than a gen­uine search for insights, Fer­gu­son has sum­moned a weary specter from a haunted man­sion, know­ing well even before he did so just what words of warn­ing it would wail.

Happy (Early) Thanksgiving!

The Spirit of Thanksgiving

Happy Thanks­giv­ing! And in cel­e­brat­ing Thanks­giv­ing, why not pause to reflect on it? Thanks­giv­ing seems to be a dis­tinc­tively Amer­i­can hol­i­day (with the pos­si­ble excep­tion of Canada). Other nations have inde­pen­dence days, memo­r­ial days, days com­mem­o­rat­ing the birth­days of their great lead­ers, etc.–but I’m not sure there’s any­thing else­where much like Thanks­giv­ing. And within the Amer­i­can tra­di­tion, Thanks­giv­ing has always seemed to me an appro­pri­ate book­end to Inde­pen­dence Day. July 4th cel­e­brates patri­otic self-assertion, polit­i­cal inde­pen­dence and human self-government, Thanks­giv­ing rec­og­nizes the other side of the coin, our depen­dence on some­thing higher than us and our grat­i­tude towards that higher being’s beneficence.
