For later reading

DavidWarren's essay today is on neocons and other political animals...
asking questions no one else seems to be asking.

we must deal, today, with today’s prudential matters. There are costs associated with each proposal for action; and costs, along with alarm bells ringing, for taking no action at all.
If, for instance, USA ceases to be present when wanted as a superpower, who or what takes its place? (This is not a rhetorical question.)
If we don’t like “globalization” and all that it infers, how are we going to eat?
How do we propose to rebuild from the bottom, after everything we lean on comes down from the top?
Or more essentially, can we have any candour on political, diplomatic, and economic questions? Or must we, for the sake of political correctness, and electoral tact, be sucked down into a miasmatic bog of lies?
