    Liberals scoff when conservatives denounce Obama and his policies as socialist. After all, they argue, Obama isn’t Stalin and America is nothing like the Soviet Union. But socialism doesn’t always resemble the Berlin Wall or the Iron Curtain, as National Review editor Kevin Williamson proves in his new book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Socialism.

    The Libertarian party is having a big year. Its presidential ticket is composed of two former Republican governors with reasonably good records and a great deal more relevant executive experience between the two of them than the Democratic and Republican nominees combined. "For once," the Libertarians joke, "we aren’t the crazy ones."

    "Ideas have consequences” is a phrase conservatives of a certain age may associate with Rush Limbaugh. Before that, it was associated with the philosopher Richard M. Weaver, who published a famous book by that title in 1948, arguing that the Western world was in decline because William of Ockham convinced Europeans that there is no such thing as absolute truth, hence Buchenwald, Communism, and the oeuvre of Jackson Pollock.

    There wasn’t a transgender City and the Pillar, or even a transgender Will and Grace. Hollywood has always had a soft spot for transvestite comedy, but mainly in the context of broad situational comedy well insulated from any messy sexual questions: Robin Williams cross-dresses to be close to his children, Shawn and Marlon Wayans because they are dedicated FBI agents.

    For working-class white guys who haven’t found their way into good jobs in the energy economy or the related manufacturing and construction booms that have reverberated throughout the oil patch, who aren’t college-bound or in possession of the skills, things aren’t looking so great: While much of the rest of the world gets healthier and longer-lived, the average life expectancy for white American men without college educations is declining.

    "If Trump comes to your town, start a riot." So urged Emmett Rensin, who wrote with all the moral nuance and intellectual depth one expects from a 26-year-old editor at Vox. A mob of violent socialists protesting Donald Trump in San Jose, Calif., acted in accord with that advice, and Rensin ("an American essayist, best known for his book Twitterature: World’s Greatest Books in 20 Tweets," says Wikipedia) sneered that most political observers would clutch their pearls at this "Affront to Democracy."

    In the 1980s, every punk band had a song about racism, the classic of the genre being "Racism Sucks," by 7 Seconds, whose teenaged members had no doubt learned a great deal about the hard facts of black life on the almost exclusively white streets of Reno, Nev., in 1981. There was also the Dead Kennedys' "Nazi Punks F*** Off," also from 1981, Black Flag's "White Minority," Operation Ivy’s "Unity,” Minor Threat’s “Guilty of Being White" - it is a pretty big catalogue.

    An ancient feature of the common law, the born-alive rule has long been formally incorporated into New York's penal code and was first cited in the 1949 case of People v. Hayner, in which a homicide conviction involving a newborn was thrown out on the grounds that the prosecution had not established that the infant had been born alive.

    A campaign against business subsidies - conservative warfare on corporate welfare - would present Republicans with an easy win: What other issue would energize free-market conservatives while stoking the sympathies of some traditional liberal Democrats, tapping into the new populist energy behind such figures as Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders while acting in the service of principled conservatism? None - so why can’t Republicans get their act together on corporate welfare?
