That Damon Linker ultimately prefers Isaiah Berlin and John Rawls to Richard Rorty, pluralism with a shrug to "monism" with a shrug. But can spiritless--dare I say unmanly?--liberalism of any stripe defend itself against its adversaries? Perhaps if we can teach the world to shrug in perfect harmony....

That complaint about Rorty’s spiritlessness was, by the way, the substance of my contribution to the voluminous Rorty literature, which you can find in this out-of-print collection.

In my hometown in Kazakhstan we used to have the Running of the Jews. It was good fun. Yea. High five! But now the neocons at the United Nations want to shut it down. If you look close, you can see the horns sprouting on their heads. Beware, my friend. High five!
