Three Myths in America


Now and then, I like to post articles that have been published in Imprimis, the flagship newsletter of Hillsdale College in Michigan. For the January 2011 edition, they are offering this excellent article by Brian T. Kennedy, who serves as president of the Claremont Institute and publisher of the Claremont Review of Books.

In his article, Mr. Kennedy takes up what he calls three myths:

1. Islam is a religion of peace.

2. America will never go to war with China because our economic interests are intertwined.

3. America won the Cold War and Russia is no longer our enemy.

Kennedy states that we believe these notions at our peril, and he makes a good case. But is anyone listening?
