Grahams sell WaPo to Bezos, Catholics and libertarianism, and more

  1. I agree that with the sale of a big-city daily newspaper, "liberalism has suffered a major hit." From Holman W. Jenkins, Jr.'s column "Business World" in the WSJ this morning: "Big-city papers have been left to spiral down to their residual value as organs of influence. The right buyer for a big metropolitan daily, by this standard, is a local real-estate developer, someone willing to lose money covering local news as long as it helps him win zoning fights and promote cronies to elective office." With a new wielder of influence at least there will be a new perspective.

  2. I can live with minarchism, provided the right of secession is guaranteed. This was essentially Mises's position.

  3. Thank you for linking to my post on the ecclesial movements and new communities. I always appreciate commentary telling me where I'm wrong so I can correct my errors.

  4. "and the American-dream middle class is going away."

    It's not clear to me that the "dream" was every more than that.
