Political Tribalism, Brexit And The Liberalist Insurgency

Many so-called liberals are great at diagnosing destructive political tribalism when it manifests in other people, but are often blind to the same pathologies within their own ranks I wrote a long piece earlier this month about deepening political tribalism as it relates to Brexit.

Blurred Lines

Here is a very interesting article from Vladimir Putin. It is interesting even if only that it was by the President of Russia himself & published in an American paper. His arguments, if they are true, are fairly compelling. However, I think he is not being forthright about Russia’s involvement …
