Discussed in this episode
Editor Charles Kesler and Associate Editor Spencer Klavan discuss the wide range of summer’s new CRB, including Chris Caldwell’s thorough analysis of America’s oblique but profound involvement in Ukraine, Michael Anton’s notes from quarantine in Dubai, and Dr. Kesler’s own essay on the several distinct generations of “voting rights”—a term which is gradually coming to imply representation by race or interest bloc.
