How to Spot A Petrified Statist

 Wilentz’s article in the New Republic is long and vaguely academic, but there’s more to it than that.

Entitled “Would You Feel Differently About Snowden, Greenwald, and Assange If You Knew What They Really Thought?” Professor Wilentz has written a hit piece on these three famous “transparencists.”  He paints them (even the Australian!) as associated with the Ron Paul anti-state, pro-peace, libertarian political phenom, and even includes several paragraphs on Ron Paul himself!  As far as I can see, Wilentz is the parent of a well-written whine about why these whistleblowers are so popular among so many average people in this country, and why that is so terribly, awfully, fundamentally wrong.

I can’t resist sharing Wilentz’ conclusion, because it’s just that good!
