Re: The Past, the Crash, and the Future (Glenn Loury & Ross Levine)

It makes perfect sense that Greenspan still asserts that the meltdown did not disprove the validity of Ayn Rand's philosophy.

In Rand's neo-Nietzschian philosophy, the "objective" is to WIN-- it...

Re: Eating a Baby With a Fork (Matt Welch & Eli Lake)

Re: The Spirit of Bipartisan Equanimity (Peter Beinart & Jonah Goldberg)

Re: The Spirit of Bipartisan Equanimity (Peter Beinart & Jonah Goldberg)

You should never respond to an idea that you disagree with by simply ignoring it.

If you don't even believe Bob Kerrey when he outright says there was a conspiracy, than you've so closed off...

Re: The Spirit of Bipartisan Equanimity (Peter Beinart & Jonah Goldberg)

We are not in Columbia because of drugs thats for sure. I assume we're there to put leverage on Chavez. Remember, its all about oil at this point.

Re: The Spirit of Bipartisan Equanimity (Peter Beinart & Jonah Goldberg)

What you say is true, but unfortunately the mainstream press does not agree. Instead they always, almost reflexively seize on the simpler narrative and call it the truth. Hard questions are not...

Re: The Spirit of Bipartisan Equanimity (Peter Beinart & Jonah Goldberg)

I don't see it that way. Rashomon is about the subjectivity of memory; it was not a sort Pragmatist take on the nature of truth in relation to how the world works.

In this case, I am observing...

Re: The Spirit of Bipartisan Equanimity (Peter Beinart & Jonah Goldberg)

The reason the details of the underwear bomber make no sense is because it was an obvious false flag attack. There I said it.

Nobody in corporate media wants to connect the obvious dots because...

Re: Gala New Year's Edition, 2010 (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

Re: Clash of the Civilized (Robert Wright & Christopher Hitchens)
