BANANA REPUBLICANISM, CONT’D….Quote of the day, from Thomas Sowell:
When I see the worsening degeneracy in our politicians, our media, our educators, and our intelligentsia, I can’t help wondering if the day may yet come when the only thing that can save this country is a military coup.
Now that’s a comforting, conservative thought, isn’t it? I wonder what Buckley thinks of NRO publishing stuff like this?
(And in case you’re wondering, there’s no further context. That’s the whole quote. It’s one bullet point in a long series of dyspeptic observations about how liberals have ruined the country.)
