  1. “Towards a more Faulknerian U.S. foreign policy”: A perennial impediment may lie in the fact that while such policies can be designed by experts, they must inevitably be executed by politicians …

    • That’s certainly true, but shouldn’t experts already know this? Why the conceit on their part? It’s as if the scholarly left (and much of the scholarly right) still believes that politics (democratic or otherwise) is somehow romantic and can be swooned with the right amount of persuasion (and tax money).

Please keep it civil
