Western countries insist both on “free trade” with poor countries and farm subsidies for themselves. Why is it so difficult even for huge countries with large, diversified economies to maintain independence from the West?If anyone could have done it, it was Brazil. In the 19th century it was imagined that Brazil could be a Colossus of the South to match the U.S., the Colossus of the North. It never panned out that way.And 100 years later, it still hasn’t happened. With a $2 trillion GDP (a respectable $9,800 per capita), nearly 200 million people, and a strong manufacturing base (the second largest in the Americas and 28.5 percent of its GDP), Brazil is far from a tiny, weak island or peninsula dependent on a patron state to keep it afloat.When Luiz Inacio “Lula” da Silva won a historic election to become president of Brazil in 2003, it seemed like an irreversible change in the country’s politics. Even though Lula’s Workers’ Party was accused of being communists w...

The 'Atlas Shrugged' author made selfishness heroic and caring about others weakness. Ayn Rand’s “philosophy” is nearly perfect in its immorality, which makes the size of her audience all the more ominous and symptomatic as we enter a curious new phase in our society....To justify and extol human greed and egotism is to my mind not only immoral, but evil.— Gore Vidal, 1961Only rarely in U.S. history do writers transform us to become a more caring or less caring nation. In the 1850s, Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896) was a strong force in making the United States a more humane nation, one that would abolish slavery of African Americans. A century later, Ayn Rand (1905-1982) helped make the United States into one of the most uncaring nations in the industrialized world, a neo-Dickensian society where healthcare is only for those who can afford it, and where young people are coerced into huge student-loan debt that cannot be discharged in bankruptcy.Rand’s impact...

Government officials are not allowed to use their platforms for campaigning. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) has filed a complaint with the Office of Special Counsel, alleging that Sarah Huckabee Sanders—White House press secretary under the Trump Administration and daughter of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee—violated the Hatch Act of 1939 by tweeting a photo of herself with rapper Kanye West.Passed when Franklin Delano Roosevelt was president, the Hatch Act of 1939 was named after Sen. Carl Hatch of New Mexico and forbids most employees of the executive branch of the federal government from certain overtly partisan activities or communications (exceptions include the president and the vice-president). And CREW is alleging that Sanders’ tweet violated the Hatch Act because West was wearing a pro-Trump “Make America Great Again” hat in the photo.Of course, Twitter didn’t exist back in 1939. But it was amended in 2012 and now applies to mo...

What does a man with nothing to hide do? He runs off to a beach house in Delaware, and finds refuge amid piles of rumpled clothes and boxes of vintage Superman comics. Mark Judge has fled Washington DC to a windswept beach home, far away from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's memory or Michael Avenatti's new gang rape claims. Judge previously told the Senate committee he has no memory of the sexual assault incident alleged by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, and said last week while that story broke that he does not want to speak publicly. An amazingly written and reported story about a guy we're gonna be hearing much more from soon. From Gabriel Pogrund, Caroll Leonnig, Aaron C. Davis, and Seung Min Kim at the Washington Post. Excerpt: A Washington Post reporter found Judge holed up Monday in a house in Bethany Beach, Del. “How’d you find me,” he asked. He declined to comment further. Barbara “Biz” Van Gelder, Judge’s attorney, said her client left town at her instruction because of...
