At The Financial Times: Anne-Marie Slaughter’s recidivism, a comment by Publius

Donald Trump has done the right thing at last. Syria’s agony will not soon end, but after years of global hand-wringing the US has finally taken a stand for basic norms of humanity and morality. Calculation of certain risks versus uncertain gains were swept away by a visceral response to evil.

Despite her attempts  at political self-rescue, enunciated as Feminism,  Ms. Slaughter cannot, even will not, surrender her addiction to an unapologetic ‘Wilsonian Idealism’. Meaning an unrepentant bellicosity, framed by the ersatz moralizing of American Exceptionalism. More than ever Steve Breyman’s essay remains stingily pertinent to Ms. Slaughter’s recidivism!
