Reasoned words here. Mr. Brooks vision could be embraced by both parties. Why can't we see more of this kind of thinking?

  1. "Today, if Republicans had learned the right lessons from the Westerns, or at least John Ford Westerns, they would not be the party of untrammeled freedom and maximum individual choice. They would once again be the party of community and civic order."

    I get suspicious when I read something like this because in the past sentences like the last one have been code words for segregation and race baiting. I'd be more impressed if Brooks recognized this, admitted to it, and cautioned against using it to corrupt actual ideals.
