Well, that was refreshing.
An entire weekend unplugged, with no intarwebs lookin' at all.
Even more behind on email.
Apologies to those who have been waiting for a response. I'll be beavering away all day today.
In the interim, please take a look at the comments to this essay.
I'd like to hear more principled discussion on how the Republic 3.0 version should deal with predatory foreign regimes/ideologies.
The geographic and temporal chasms that North America enjoyed in the time of Washington's "entangling alliances" admonition no longer exist.
So how does one maintain domestic freedom w/o becoming intolerably vulnerable to the world's predators? I think the answer has a lot to do with the US military's long-standing ability to remain subordinate to civilian control, but I truly want to hear from folks on both the problem and the solution.
