How We Got Here

Finally I get to finish David Frum's How We Got Here: despite his snideness, his disingenuousness, his constant misreadings, his getting details plain wrong, his tendency to just list "absurdities" as though it were self-evident why they’re absurd (or bad, or whatever)... despite all this, it's hard to argue with the overall thesis, it's hard to deny the idea of the 70's as being the point of inflexion; but it's harder still not to wonder whether it was just the inertia and momentum of the 60’s coming late to the party...
