Default Re: The More Things Change (Robert Wright & Eli Lake)

Oh god, Bob started channeling Flynt Leverett style realism in this one, I started to puke a little. It goes beyond the standard intellectual lines of realism and instead ventures into the callous realm of complete disinterest in the sufferings and concerns of anyone other than me and mine (such a progressive impulse there Bob, if he were talking about whether or not to help or intervene on the bahalf of the poor this way he'd be checked by a sea of liberal bh commenters).

It is a cheap and useless statement to say "I would rather X be another way," just don't expect a drop of treasure or effort or blood on MY part to get there.

"I swear by my life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine."


Bob Wright, the John Galt of the foreign policy space.
