  • Jeanne Kirkpatrick

    Posted by Ginny on December 8th, 2006 (All posts by )

    That strong voice, Jeanne Kirkpatrick, has died. Here. And here, where WSJ notes how a sense of place can reverberate in an international vocabulary & international context.


    One Response to “Jeanne Kirkpatrick”

    1. Tom Grey - Liberty Dad Says:

      Nice of you to notice — there is a great 20 page essay by Jeanne on the difference between American supported authoritarian, and commie supported totalitarian.

      I keep thinking of Pinochet vs. Allende; the S. Korean General Chung vs. N. Korean Kim il Sung; the S. Viet guys (what was the leader’s name after we helped Diem get assassinated?) vs. the N. Viet commies; the Shah vs. the Ayotallah. I don’t think much of El Salvador or Nicuragua, but Jeanne did.

      (happy New Year, Ginny)

      America was always on the side of less evil — those opposed to America in practice were supporting greater evil in practice.
      And still are.
