Alexandria’s Suicide Note for America

Socialists have always had a problem with F.A. Hayek (The Road to Serfdom), Milton Friedman (Capitalism and Freedom) and other free-market economists.

No European nation," writes George Will in a recent column, "was as enchanted as Germany was by Barack Obama’s studied elegance and none is more repelled by Donald Trump’s visceral vulgarity.” Just so Millennials know, the Washington Journalism Review once proclaimed Will the “best writer, any subject” and in 2017 Andrew Ferguson hailed him
