History begins again at the "end of history." James Carafano writes:

Outside two world wars and the protracted Cold War, what most defined 20th century geopolitics were two competing global projects: imperialism and anti-colonialism. Totalitarian rulers embraced both banners, launching wars of aggression that crushed the ambitions of free peoples and those yearning to be free.

Today, those malignant projects are back, once again setting the world aflame. Extinguishing the fires will take both might and moral clarity. It will also require the radical left to admit it’s been radically wrong. The free world will have to tack right to win.

[James Carafano, "In a New Kind of War, the Old Wars of Ideas Are Back," RealClearPolicy, March 21]
