Amazingly, Brooks has a good column today. He thinks the GOP needs to abandon the legacies of Goldwater and Reagan, because the anti-statist, “liberty vs. power” worldview is no longer relevant in the decentralized post-cold war world, where the chief threats come from devolution and chaos and security — be it security from violence, secure access to health care, what have you — is a prerequisite for freedom.
I have nothing to add. Read the column. It’s good. I can’t believe I’m saying this.
