Interesting perspective as always from Mr. Hitchens. He certainly has the ability to bring historical precedence and past policies people have long forgotten into today’s discourse. Certainly a claim good be made that the current form of democracy is no longer working adequately and ought to be re-examined. I too feel that the complacency on the part of the masses is in part to blame for the heightened tension between government and people. Macron has a tough task which he clearly is not capable of doing. Le Pen might be knocked down but her movement will continue to grow as the discontent builds. So much uncertainty in the air. These temporary fixes will only last so long.

One of the best summaries of the problems on college campuses. Free speech isn’t a public good: it’s an individual right. Opposition to freedom of speech is simply a denial of another person’s humanity.
Interesting article which challenges the idea that liberal principles and individual liberty are mere white European constructs. Those ascribing to identity politics won’t be pleased to have their narrative challenged. This also goes for ethno nationalists who scoff at the notion that certain civilizations are not capable of such enlightened thought.
This needs more views. I don’t always agree with the Republican party (I tend to be independent) but he is absolutely spot on. Blacks/African-American’s always forget it was the Democrats that favored slavery, Democrats who continued Jim Crow, Democrats who championed public housing creating pockets of strife and violent crime, and its Democrats who are screwing over Blacks today by having economic policies that keep blacks/African-Americans dependent on the government. The naivety that blacks/African Americans have displayed in the political ring must change. Take charge of your own thinking and don’t be a mindless Democratic slave.
