    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."

    It is strange that Michael Dougherty so fundamentally misdiagnoses the conservative reaction to Trump: “A Trump win,” he writes, “at least temporarily threatens the conservative movement, because it threatens to expose how inessential its ideas are to holding together the party.”

    Even the nation’s oldest consumer-advocacy organization thinks Uber et al. serve the public better than the highly regulated taxi cartels. The evolution away from the old system and monopolies may not always take the most direct route, but it is moving in the right direction, toward the bright lights and endless possibilities.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    "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."

    "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.

    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.
