    Responding to Adam Kirsch and Adam Bellow on the subject of conservative fiction, Douthat argues provocatively that there aren’t enough bad conservative artists out there: [T]o be truly great, truly lasting, a novel or any other exercise in storytelling has to transcend cliches and oversimplifications, has to capture something of the deep complexity of human affairs. So at a certain level of seriousness or genius, the problem-or-is-it of conservative underrepresentation in the contemporary arts melts away, because you’re dealing with a range of creators whose talents effectively…
  • Mission Creep, 1914 Style

    Andrew Sullivan
    1 Aug 2014 | 4:47 pm
    The centennial of the July Crisis that led Europe down the perilous path to World War I has given many historians and scholars of war an occasion to revisit the question of how the European powers managed to blunder into such a bloody fiasco. Stephen Walt asks an equally interesting question: Why on did it take more than four years to correct what was obviously a huge mistake? Ending the war was difficult because each side’s territorial ambitions and other war aims kept increasing, which made it harder for them to even consider some sort of negotiated settlement. War aims continued to…
  • The Molecular Metropolis

    Andrew Sullivan
    1 Aug 2014 | 4:15 pm
    MIT engineering prof Franz-Josef Ulm came up with an analogy for understanding cities as molecular structures: With colleagues, Ulm began analyzing cities the way you’d analyze a material, looking at factors such as the arrangement of buildings, each building’s center of mass, and how they’re ordered around each other. They concluded that cities could be grouped into categories: Boston’s structure, for example, looks a lot like an “amorphous liquid.” Seattle is another liquid, and so is Los Angeles. Chicago, which was designed on a grid, looks like glass, he says; New York…
  • Catholics And Hobby Lobby

    Andrew Sullivan
    1 Aug 2014 | 3:47 pm
    The defense of religious freedom by the Catholic hierarchy is not exactly a universal view among the people the hierarchy are alleged to represent, according to the latest Kaiser poll. Catholics are split down the middle on it – 49 – 47 percent. Black and Hispanic Protestants are opposed to the ruling. It looks, in fact, as if it really has little to do with religious liberty and might just be yet another issue where partisan polarization explains it as well as anything else. And look again at the generation gap. One gets the feeling that the current court is desperately trying to…

  • Comment on Wiping another Country off the Map: Israel does it to Palestine by Mark Koroi

    Mark Koroi
    1 Aug 2014 | 2:42 pm
    Operation Cast Lead commenced on December 27th, 2008 – just two days after Christmas. This would serve two purposes - (1)it would not interfere with the Christmas tourism season in Israel; (2)Western governments were largely closed down for the holidays. Further, George W. Bush was in the post-election lame duck segment of his second term and had little reason to restrain Israel from committing wholesale war crimes as would occur and be found by the Goldstone Commission. Operation Cast Lead ended on January 18, 2009 – two days before the Obama inauguration – so the Obama…

    Very nice. Very subtle. Hamas is just as bad as Israelikudnia, I see. Implacably threatening “their,” not “its,” very existence from “just next door.” So sensitive too: “Israel could handle things much better,” we learn, but the remaining Palestinians threatening Israel from Gaza, unable to even fold their tent and give “Israel” what “it” wants because the Pals are locked in and stateless, (fairness alert, here)”deserve better” from bad Hamas as well as from bad-hanling “Israel.” Quite a nice bit…

    We have to conclude wars are meant to hurt civilians. Not as “collateral”, but as the main focus. No grand strategy ir tactics, no military prowess, just brute force and cruelty. You have to de-humanize your adversary to avoid remorse and your own de-humanization. A normal human being forced yo take part in that horror will develop mental disorders.
