Empire or republic?
The principle of nonintervention is neither liberal nor conservative in orientation, and at the inception of the Republic it was accepted as a commonsense.
— From the book The Pornography of Power via Common Dreams

Beautiful music together, literally
Earl Scruggs and Joan Baez: the Old Right and the New Left?

Most people don’t remember that as recently as the 1930s Southern fundamentalists were anti-war.

As for me I’m still crushing on early-’60s Nana Mouskouri. The Sunday-afternoon Greek-music radio programme on WPRB (student-run from Princeton; they play everything) had the good kind of eclecticism from men singing Orthodox chant and instrumental folk music to Quincy Jones’ 1962 recording of her singing ‘What’s Good About Goodbye?’
