The Ruling Class

Congress vs. Normal People

Public duties should be seen as George Washington saw them—a tremendous personal inconvenience to be undertaken with reluctance. Special privileges should be abhorred.

The Coming Military Purge

An increasingly hostile ruling class, who conceive of themselves as occupying a disloyal, irredentist America, is a formula for weakness abroad and conflict at home.
