A new issue of The American Conservative goes to press today. Don’t miss it — the September-dated issue includes a skeptical look (two pieces by Ted Galen Carpenter and John Laughland) at Americans’ love for global revolutions and protests; Michael P. Farris on what the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child means for your family; takedowns of Ben Bernanke and Lawrence Summers by the Cunning Realist  and Dennis Dale; Paul Gottfried’s memoir of his father; Reid Buckley on why higher education produces bad writing; Sean Scallon on what the GOP can learn from Andrew Jackson’s war on the second Bank of the United States (hint: it involves ending the Fed); and much more, including columns by Pat Buchanan, Bill Kauffman, Stuart Reid, and Eve Tushnet .
The issue begins arriving in stores in about 10 days, but of course the best way to make sure you get all the goodness that is TAC is to subscribe . And if you enjoy the website, please donate  to keep it growing. Even $10 or $20 dollars is a great help.
