Here’s an essay in Crisis Magazine by my friend and my Regnery Publishing editor Harry Crocker on American empire that ought to stir some discussion out there. I am breaking my blogging rule here in that I have not yet read this piece in its entirety, but just skimmed it. But since Harry is a gifted writer I can make an exception, which is not to say I endorse his essay’s thesis. I don’t consider myself much of an imperialist, or a neoconservative, for that matter. But neither am I an isolationist, or a paleocon. But I did read enough of this piece to know that it will generate strong sentiments from both sides. And, it couldn’t be more timely.
