posted by Jack Kerwick

posted by Jack Kerwick

On this 50th anniversary of the “I Have a Dream” speech, even the self-avowed apostles of “individualism,” “liberty,” and “limited government”—i.e. “conservatives”—can’t resist lavishing endless praise upon its author, Martin Luther King, Jr. As uncomfortable as it makes these declared […]

Iraq, Ideology, and Truth: Dissecting the Political Blame Game
