Is Will ill?
Did a conservative pundit really write this column? George Will’s July 11 column, “Egypt’s preferable tyranny,” recalled Jefferson’s advice that great innovations should not be forced on slender majorities and said that the Muslim Brotherhood promised no separation of politics and religion. He also said theologized politics wherein compromise is apostasy points toward the Orwellian vision of totalitarianism.
How does this differ from current American conservative actions here in North Carolina and throughout the country? Trust me, I’m no fan of runaway liberal activities, and I have always found Will to be a thoroughly thoughtful and intelligent voice.
Will conservatives and their political groups herald his advice or ignore Will and hope we didn’t read this column?
