Mr. Luce on ‘Hard Choices’ redux: a comment by Political Observer

Sometimes political cynicism reheated has an unattractive aroma. What to call it? the odor of decay, dessicated and dusty? Although Mr. Luce hits his marks with a certain effectiveness, as to Ms. Clinton’s unslakable political ambition, and it’s ruthless exercise of opportunism. For proof of this see the shameless jingoism in her interview with acolyte Jeffrey Goldberg, published August 10,2014, unfortunately Mr. Luce missed an opportunity to write a companion piece or simply an enlightening postscript to this review    :

Ms. Clinton combines with certain public relations veracity: Feminism, Neo-Liberalism combined with the R2P, Neo-Conservative, New Democratic  alliance in response to their creature The New Cold War, and  the revived War on Terror: ISIL,ISIS,IL .

About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
