Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Jeane Kirkpatrick, RIP

One of the first people who made me aware of a neo-conservative approach to foreign policy was Jeane Kirkpatrick, who died yesterday. Her "Dictatorships and Double Standards" is a classic.

And her service at the U.N. reminds us of the importance of having a forceful advocate of American principles and interests in that position.

Update: In addition to the article linked above Commentary has posted a number of other Kirkpatrick pieces from its archives on the front page of its website.
