Drezner is an academic (which he admits) and likes to play footsie with glibertarians; now he admits that the whole Von Mises thing really is a cult.

I wonder what took him so long to finally write this? (That's the same question I have for Frum.) The direction the current GOP is going is the direct consequence of the election of Reagan in 1980; Reagan was helped (which he readily accepted) by that clique (or maybe it's a claque?) of hyper-religionists that later officially called themselves the Council for National Policy. Ever since then the GOP has been transforming itself into the atavistic organization we see today.

I posted this comment over there.

As a Canadian I look at the GOP and I think of what Kissinger had to say about the Jacobins in 'A World Restored'. The GOP now strike me as revolutionaries.

It seems to me, like the Jacobins, they do not accept the legitimacy of the current system. They mean to overthrow it and replace it with one closer to their ideology. An ideology that on the surface appears to include 'Liberty, Equality and Brotherhood', but in actuality it will be a system where 'some animals are more equal than others.'

So it's no surprise that they say little about foreign policy. That isn't their concern at this time. Currently the GOP is most concerned with getting the power they need to remake America into a new country.

Then it will be the rest of the world's turn.

As far as him and others taking so long to leave, well, it's like leaving a marriage. It takes a lot for a person to realize, "This isn't going to work anymore. We have to go our separate ways." The feelings of failure and inadequacy are hard to deal with. People don't like to think that either they or their partner have changed. They don't like to think they didn't see it coming and they don't like believing that they could have changed things.

So they hold on long after the relationship has failed completely. The pain of that is less than the pain of failure.

According to an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll last month, less than 15 per cent of Republican primary voters thought a foreign policy issue should be the first priority of the federal government.

Acknowledgement of their utter failure.

Excellent read. Thanks for posting.
