Libertarian Judicial Activism Isn’t What the Courts Need

Were the Founding Fathers anarchists? Did the ideas contained in John Stuart Mill’s On Liberty, published in 1859, somehow inspire the delegates to the Constitutional Convention in 1787? Does the Constitution contemplate Robert Nozick’s minimal state, presaging his 1974 magnum opus Anarchy, State, and Utopia? These may seem like facetious questions, but libertarian legal scholars […]

Glasnost and Perestroika for American Higher Education

In 1986, Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev announced two new policies: glasnost (openness) and perestroika (restructuring). Five years later, Communism’s 74-year-long domination of Russia came to an end. Like the Soviet Union in 1986, America’s higher education system is careening toward a crisis, as costs spiral upward and measurable results slide inexorably downward. We need to […]

Travel is an Antidote to American Political Hysteria

A few weeks ago I met a man with backwards feet. This was in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, halfway through a vacation in Southeast Asia. It was at a dingy old-school gym with rusty weights and a corrugated tin roof that made a thunderous racket when it rained. A frail, middle-aged man sat at a counter […]

Most Great to Them that Know

Christians, we are told by the greatest of their teachers going back to Augustine, are citizens of two cities: An earthly city to which they owe the duties commanded by the laws, and a heavenly city to which they owe their primary loyalty as subjects of the Kingship of God. Faithful Christians engage in politics, […]

Once More Unto the Breach, Dear Friends

It’s so much easier to be in opposition. Since the electionis mirabilis, I’ve received a lot of entreaties to say something. Anything! These have come mostly from well-wishers looking for guidance. Tell Trump what to do next! Does anyone actually think I’ve told him what to do up to now? Or that he would listen […]
