In “recycling” these old posts, my practice has normally been to reproduce the whole post. In this instance, I’ll merely link to it:
What got me at this writing was this passage, which strikes me as awfully current:
“Josh Barro is one of those who just didn’t get it. To me, the whole row has been about free speech. It is unacceptable in this country that mere shifts of the zeitgeist should force an individual’s conscience; that we should become a thought-police state.”
That was dated 01/11/14. I’m struck that we may now be at greater risk than ever, of becoming a thought-police state.
The Gospel vs. George Will
David Farenthold – Attempts to reduce wasteful government spending show austerity is a hard nut to crack – Dec. 28
George F. Will – 2013’s lesson for conservatives – Dec. 28
Farenthold asks what’s best for the country. Will asks what’s best for conservatives. That difference illustrates what Trojan Horse Productions and The William Tell Show are all about.
I will develop that at length in a later post.
