Book looks fascinating. But why does a study of the "global impact" of the American Revolution have no references to primary or secondary works in languages other than English?

“America in the world” as monolingual pursuit as historic tragedy and scholarly farce.
 
The human details and Bacevich quotes in this are amazing.
As he seeks to end "endless wars," Trump describes the human toll of America's overseas conflicts in bracing terms. Some see authenticity, others exploitation. ⁦@michaelcrowleynytimes.com/2019/10/19/us/…

1/ The election of Donald Trump in 2016 scrambled the ongoing post-9/11 national security law debate in fascinating ways. I analyzed the minuet in the early days, and the patterns set in those early days mostly persist.
Replying to @samuelmoyn
2/ And, as I predicted, "It is even possible that the case against endless war will finally get a hearing as it becomes clearer every day what conservatives and liberals enabled under a new president whom neither side expected." lawfareblog.com/endless-war-wa…

I agree with ⁦@DouthatNYT⁩ that in many ways Trump is a weak president. But the metric that he and others use—“too weak to pass legislation”—I think misperceives both Trump’ and the GOP’s political vision, which is not one of legislative governance. nytimes.com/2019/10/19/opi…
Replying to @LarryGlickman @ChaseMadar and 1 otherfalse
Tax cuts? Judges approved out of Congress? The legislature is the avenue to entrenchment, and that is the main story of this presidency.

I am generally not a fan of sanctions as a foreign policy tool. Liberals love them because they seem an avenue for continued “engagement” while eschewing “endless war.” But mostly they hurt ordinary people, empower black marketers, and do little to shift target regime policies.

Will be interested to see how Bernie's rally today will be covered, especially by major newspapers. Will it merit a mention by the NYT? If so, what page? What critical angle will they find to make it seems like it wasn't a massive success?
Replying to @MatthewSitman
Initially @melbournecoal had a lede that constrasted the endorsements to his allegedly lackluster performance in the debate (?); fortunately, the story NYT has up opens differently now. nytimes.com/2019/10/19/us/…

1. It is completely BANANAS that the blob (of which I’m a proud card carrying member) has decided to criticize Warren for saying we should drawdown in the Middle East. Does anybody think that what we’ve been doing for the past 20 years has actually been working?

I wish more people on the progressive left would pay closer attention to what Bernie has said about international affairs. He’s charted a course that makes clear why Gabbard’s foreign policy views are problematic. theguardian.com/commentisfree/…

Wait, is Leo Tolstoy a Russian asset?
 
In reply to @samuelmoyn
To say that Letwin is “never Brexit” is too strong: he’d almost certainly have voted for Johnson’s deal had it gone to a final vote tonight.
Replying to @chrisbrooke
I see--so he and some others have principally been motivated by the specter of a No Deal Brexit, rather than opposition to Brexit itself.
 
Shirley Letwin was principally a follower of Friedrich Hayek, Michael Oakeshott, or Leo Strauss?
Replying to @samuelmoyn
Is there some parallel to be developed between Kristol and Letwin given aspects of background (parents at Chicago, etc.) as "Never-Brexit/Trump" conservatives? @chrisbrooke

Philosophers are still having the best debates in academia
 
In reply to @yeselson
So to be clear: “the necessary and true” people are delusional or naive and/or protecting hierarchy. ; the “necessary to say it’s true” people are shrewd. But also: Stanley Fish basically has this right. Power constructs interpretive communities; interpretive communities rule.
Replying to @yeselson
Shrewd sometimes, short-sighted others. Like all strategies, legalism can entrench compromises or mistakes, especially as people forget it was born as a strategy, to adopt when it works and drop when it doesn't.

Kouchner would actually refer to Foucault’s speech on “human rights against governments” for his “devoir d’ingérence”
 
There should be a third category below: “Necessary and not true: a enabling fiction.”

David Landau (FSU) presenting at the Hot Topic Panel: Comparative Law & Populism, questioning the received wisdom that courts are "the last line of defense for the liberal democratic constitutional order." But how do courts also act *against* democracy?

Bernie is the best shot the anti-imperialist left has had to remake American foreign policy since the 1960s, maybe since the beginning of the Cold War. Gabbard only impact will be to derail that project.

Thank you so much, @JohnBrennan - above all, for your decades of service to this country and for the way you use your voice as @realDonaldTrump thinks up new ways each day to make us less respected & less safe.
 
For Cold War clarity, let’s reserve the term “asset” for assets and call the others “useful idiots.” Examples of usage: “Gabbard is a useful idiot for Putin” or “Many in the Resistance are useful idiots for neoliberalism.”
This is so important. Russian “assets” are not formal relationships in the USIC sense of the word. If you are parroting Russian talking points and furthering their interests, you’re a source who is too dumb to know you’re being played to ask for money.
 
Hillary Clinton, whose team actively helped Trump win the nomination, then lost a deeply winnable election against him, is now all but daring Tulsi Gabbard to spoil 2020 in his favor. Maybe... she’s the asset!

Excellent education makes people good at things worth doing. Superior education makes people better than others at things that need not be worth doing. Excellence is both valuable and scalable; superiority is neither.

Recent rhetoric about “The Enlightenment” is bizarre. A major strand of the Enlightment was about the Perfectibility of Man through Reason. The revolutionary reconstruction of society. The French Revolution is a child of the E & the Bolshevik Revolution one of its grandchildren.

Trump says he's ending endless war. In fact, he is ramping up deployments in the Middle East. His loudest DC critics, meanwhile, are colluding in his fiction, claiming Trump is anti-war in order to justify more war, @tparsi and I argue in @ForeignPolicy: foreignpolicy.com/2019/10/18/tru…

I unpack the critiques of the work of Banerjee, Duflo & Kremer and offer some of my own reflections.
