Some Welcome Candor

In a remarkable piece, writer Sam Harris notes:

[M'y correspondence with liberals has convinced me that liberalism has grown dangerously out of touch with the realities of our world — specifically with what devout Muslims actually believe about the West, about paradise and about the ultimate ascendance of their faith. . ..

This may seem like frank acquiescence to the charge that "liberals are soft on terrorism." It is, and they are.


Thank you for your honesty, Mr. Harris. Hope you're not expecting a friendly review of your new book in the pages of The New York Times.

I think I know someone who went to "Desperately wants to change the subject camp..."

Though Harris irks me with some of his stuff, he never seemed stupid. This is a bit of proof.
