Politicians like Transferism: a system in which one group of people forces a second group to pay for things that the people believe they, or some third group, should have. Transferism is the forced redistribution of what’s produced.
What is the interagency, and why should its views guide the conduct of American diplomatic and national-security professionals? The Constitution grants the president the power to set defense and diplomatic policy. Where did this interagency come from?
Elite liberals too often talk about patriotism as if it’s a set of blinders preventing Americans from recognizing their country’s flaws. Likewise, conservative elites dismiss patriotism as a trifle to be set aside when there are higher investment returns to chase or markets to open.
