Right On. Analyzing the other side of our politics

The Sept. 28 issue of The Nation has this tremendous long survey of literature about the political right (Right On is the link), in which I sought wisdom to understand some of our conundrums.

Though tempted to ramble on here and describe all the questions in my head, I will quit early and simply recommend you to read it and decide for yourself what unanswerable questions are the biggest.

Meanwhile, here's the Correction from that issue of The Nation:
In Christopher Hayes's "The Secret Government" (Sept. 14), Abu Zubaydah was waterboarded eighty-three times in one month, not 183 times. (It was Khalid Shaikh Mohammed who was waterboarded 183 times.) We regret the error, and the torture.
