Politics Summed Up
An interesting idea from the First Things blog:
Responsible political opinion runs only in a narrow range, from the liberal certainty that freedom is worth its risks to the conservative intuition that civilization is worth its costs. Everything beyond these boundaries is radical and irresponsible, in one way or another—usually in a denial that there actually are any risks to freedom or costs to civilization.
From a much longer post on abortion politics.
