A Provocative Piece By Harry Crocker

October 27, 2004

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.
