Today at, Daniel Larson examined Ted Cruz’s foreign policy positions, Matthew Harwood discussed Gen. Stanley McCrystal’s depraved antics in Afghanistan, and Noah Millman challenged the notion that there is some natural order to how a country’s borders should be drawn. Rod Dreher took on the secularist claim that religions are a priori prone to violence, Scott Galupo addressed the Sikh Temple shooting and the problems of aesthetic extremism, and Philip Giraldi underscored the increasing friction between the demand for new technology and the dwindling level of privacy that accompanies it.

Larison delineated policies Romney could adopt if he weren’t Romney, and Millman thought through election-year tax politics.
