Paul Rahe on Contemporary Tyranny

Paul Rahe, who teaches at Hillsdale College, is one of this nation's most distinguished political historians.  Don't miss his NRO interviews amidst your Thanksgiving preparations.  Rahe (pronounced "ray") applies Tocqueville's notion of "soft despotism" to our current sorry state of politics.  His recent Soft Despotism, Democracy's Drift contains the best introduction to Tocqueville I have yet seen.
