Quote for the Day

By Taylor Marvin

Will Wilkinson is a genius:

“The United States is “causing enormous trouble around the world” not due to some muddled idea of freedom, but due to a mixed-up conviction that America is special, the vanguard of providence, called forth unto the world with the righteous sword of liberation. If America is “almost a rogue state”, it is because our Pharisaic self-infatuation encourages us to see ourselves as a colossus of emancipation both able and obligated to stomp around the globe making it safe for democracy. It really isn’t because Americans insist on motoring to the Piggly Wiggly in petrol-guzzling Ram Ziggurats.”
