Let’s start with the most recent and work our way back.
First, yesterday Ron published, “TNR and the Crisis of The American Intellectual: Can the Old Liberal Stalwart Play a Role in Today’s World?” which takes the occasion of a new editor at The New Republic to analyze the decline of both the publication and the liberal public intellectual.

Meet the late Sarah Horowitz, child of political activist David Horowitz, who managed to fuse the painful lessons of her father’s life with a mystical Judaism to complete the task he never could: showing how the Left could save itself from self-destruction.
In 1956 a teenage David Horowitz suffered a wound which would pain him for the rest of his life. The release of the Khrushchev Report – which revealed Joseph Stalin’s crimes – would shatter many relationships. One was between Horowitz and his father. While Philip Horowitz remained loyal to …
