R.R. Reno on martinis and taxes:
How do we deal with unsustainable spending and borrowing? The formula is simple: less spending—or more accurately less rapid increases in spending—and more revenue. But can we generate more revenue without suppressing economic growth, which is after all what will allow us to pay for government over the long term?
Also today, Austin Ruse on abortion’s backdoor maneuver at the U.N.:
One of the great pro-life victories internationally over the past twenty years has been the defeat of the attempt to make abortion a universally recognized right through U.N. documents. Abortion is not mentioned in a single hard-law treaty and therefore has not risen to the legal level of a “human right.”
