Bret Stephens has an interesting article in today’s WSJ in which he posits that if the PalNazis turned all Gandhi, a Pal state would become inevitable.
For this to happen, the PalNazis would have to stop being who and what they are: Islamic Supremacists, Jew-haters, barbarians.
I once took a philosophy course in college. After surveying all the big boys, from Plato to Kierkegaard to Wittgenstein, I innocently asked the professor what practical application these philosophies had in real life.
My professor looked at me with pity.
“None,” he said, “philosophy is beyond the physical world.”
Which is a pretty good description of Stephens’ intellectual exercise.
