This week on theamericanconservative.com, Michael Brendan Dougherty caught up with the Obamacons, Noah Millman exchanged dependents for allies and partners, and Michael Desch marked the GOP’s lost advantage in foreign policy. Jon Utley proposed eight ways to cut defense waste, Daniel Larison laid out the foreign policy agenda Romney could (and should) have, and William Chip redefined the role of the U.S. in the Islamic Belt. Robert P. Murphy recognized the social benefits of successful entrepreneurs, while Scott Galupo lauded Wilhelm Roepke for conceding the limits of capitalism.
Should the Postal Service go private? Millman has some ideas. Meanwhile, Chris Bray reviewed George Lakoff’s The Little Blue Book, Samuel Goldman complicated our Anglo-Saxon heritage, Dougherty criticized the NCAA for airbrushing history, and Galupo introduced social entrepreneurship as a means of reviving small urban areas.
