by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Monday, February 19, 2018

I've heard many people on Facebook and elsewhere talk about how politicized the 2018 Olympics are. In this case, though, I think politics is in the eye of the beholder. Sure, I thought that Mike Pence had incredibly bad manners in standing only for the U.S. team at the opening ceremonies. And some of the mainstream media went gaga over the sister of North Korea's chief murderer. But if you choose to focus on that, that's your choice.

A frightening recent report: an estimated 200 million Muslim girls and women alive today have been forced to go through female genital mutilation; also frightening: in America and Europe most of the leaders of the feminist movement have remained all but silent amidst this horror. There have been, thankfully though, a few exceptions. The most notable of them has been Ayaan Hirsi Ali who has become the leading voice in the fight against this attack upon the body, heart and spirit of so many.

What is our national character as Americans? Has it been lost? That question begs a larger dialogue that begins later this month when PBS airs a new documentary—”American Creed”—inspired by political scientist Condoleezza Rice and historian David Kennedy.

It is not enough for the United States to say it knows Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election; it must do something about it, former Ambassador Michael McFaul said Monday, after hearing national security adviser H.R. McMaster's speech in person in Munich over the weekend.

When Trials Make Us Better

quoting William Damonvia Inquirer.net
Sunday, February 18, 2018

William Damon’s 1995 classic, “Greater Expectations: Overcoming the Culture of Indulgence in America’s Homes and Schools,” calls the crisis of indulgence, particularly among the youth, a “failure of spirit.” He points out that research has shown how children desire to be of service to others, are open to moral and religious formation, and look for intellectual challenges, but the culture of indulgence has killed all these.

quoting Stephen D. Krasnervia National Interest
Sunday, February 18, 2018

In political science, the “deep state” concept has been used to describe politics in countries like Turkey and Pakistan. In these places, deep-state theorists claim shadowy networks engage in extralegal and illegal activities, including bombings and assassinations, to advance their parochial interests or protect their vision of the regime. Given this context, the term “deep state” surely doesn’t fit an established liberal democracy like the United States.
