On moralising politics
Or ‘values in politics... oh, not your values’. If the liberals had listened to Murray Rothbard it would have saved them a lot of trouble. (Then they wouldn’t be modern liberals but classical ones, the right kind.) Again the ‘progressives’ and the Protestant right have the same ancestry (including the real version of Graham Greene’s Alden Pyle). Interestingly even the old Catholic city bosses, even if they weren’t exactly St Thomas Aquinas, knew better. Go back to boring old politics as management: mind your own business and stay out of foreign wars. From First Things.
