What I read this (holiday) week. Best wishes for 2013!

Corey Robin on the the failed Hobbesian national security state.

The preemptive war on Hagel.

How to negotiate with Iran every country ever.

Visiting Israel and Palestine (via Sullivan): “Did you really think you could make an appreciable change in the world’s most celebrated conflict, in a single day, no less? Is it just as condescending and unjustifiable as it now seems, to come in from America, and after three months believe you can and should try to make a difference.”

The Republican Party’s anti-Muslim wing is in retreat, argue Tim Murphy and Adam Sewer.

I quite liked Django Unchained, but Tanya Steele’s critical essay is well argued.

Nicolay – Bullet Train
