    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.

    "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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    It has become fashionable on the left to mock the offering of “thoughts and prayers,” the usual banality seen on social media after a natural disaster or a terrorist massacre, shared by people unconnected to the event but compelled, by self-importance or political interests or both, to connect themselves to it. Comedienne Samantha Bee threw a profanity-laced fit over “thoughts and prayers” after the Orlando massacre.

    In The Fractured Republic, Yuval Levin argues that conservatives suffer from a paralyzing nostalgia for the 1980s, in which they detected an echo of the moral certainty and economic dynamism of the 1950s. But some remember the 1980s rather differently: The US divorce rate peaked in 1980, and children in elementary school in the Reagan years were the first generation in which the question "Are your parents still married?" was both common and of intense interest.

    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.
