The Present Discontents

 

Some weeks ago, John Anderson — former deputy prime minister of Australia — passed through Hillsdale and did an interview with me for his podcast. I thought nothing of it: I do this sort of thing from time to time. But John posted it on Friday, and I began getting email. Yesterday, on a whim, I watched it. At the time that it was taped, I thought that I had not done well. I remembered that the name Barack Obama chose for his administration suggested that he had a revolution in mind but I could not come up, on the spur of the moment, with the name: The New Foundation.

Yesterday, I watched the interview and thought, “This is not just good. Its posting is timely.” You might find it interesting as well.

    Okay. I’m only halfway through but that’s tucked away in the bookmarks to be revisited later.

    You felt that you hadn’t done well? Mr. Anderson showed sense. He knew gold when he heard it and he stayed out of the way.

    This was well said! Above all, the absence of historical studies has encouraged irresponsibility & damaged the political judgment of ordinary Americans, which, in constitutional majorities, used to be significantly better.
