Achieving Our Country Richard Rorty

Today’s Book Selection — from Achieving Our Country Richard Rorty. In 1979, children from the top socioeconomic quarter of Ameri­can families were four times more likely to get a college de­gree than those from the bottom quarter; now they are ten times more likely. In 1998, American philosopher and academic Richard Rorty wrote of the emerging political and social divisions in America and predicted the emergence of a “strongman” in American politics.

Whether readers agree or disagree with Rorty’s writings [which includes some statements more pungent than those included below] , the fact that he wrote so directly about this phenomenon almost twenty years ago is intriguing and merits reflection:

Benjamin Netanyahu

will round out his 4000th day as prime minister. He spent most, if not all of them, fending off a Democratic president who, he believed, was out to do him harm. Which is why Wednesday was to be one of the happiest in his life, the day he would be received royally at the White House, make himself comfortable in an Oval Office armchair, smile at the cameras, silently thank God and finally have the time of his life.

Netanyahu must have fantasized about his first meeting with a Republican president like Mitt Romney, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush and even Newt Gingrich. There would be great chemistry between the two leaders, as well as deep understanding and wall-to-wall agreement. The American would gaze at Netanyahu with admiration, and might seek his counsel about the war on terror or reviving the economy.   Continue reading
