(Also in The American Spectator’s Pursuit of Liberty series: Daniel Johnson’s “Storks Are Landing,” Fouad Ajami’s “Liberty for Strangers,” Natan Sharansky and Rod Dermer’s “The Case for Freedom,” and Victor Davis Hanson’s “Armies for Democracy — Past, Present, and Future.” To read the first five essays in the series, please click here.)
