Iraq, The Conservative Version
And so it comes down to John Derbyshire tells us what the problem is in Iraq:
Colin Freeman, writing in the London Sunday Telegraph, to tell us what would be obvious to everyone if we hadn’t been marinating ouselves for decades in a warm soup of multi-culturalist glop: That electoral democracy is problematic in a multicultural society, given the strong temptation to vote for representatives of your own cultural group.
In plain English, the problem, the obvious problem, is liberals and democracy. How long before they decide the problems in America have the same cause?
(This was a facetious post. We’ve all heard for years that the problems in Iraq are caused by the unwillingness that many of us have to ignore reality and clap louder. And we’ve all heard for years that the problems that exist here are rooted in the same place.)
