Paired with careful diplomacy and the expansion of a space-specific rules-based order, advancements in U.S. space capacity both deter and inhibit adversarial adventurism.

Responsible Statecraft

Iraq, Afghanistan Provide Lessons on US Weapons Flows

Will this latest batch of weapons headed to Ukraine finally win the peace? While this is possible, do we fully understand what we are giving up to do so? As history shows, no matter how advanced a weapon is, someone will eventually figure out a way to counter it.

Foreign Affairs

George Kennan’s Warning on Ukraine

“If alive today, Kennan would note the danger of cornering the Russians to the point where they might lash out. He would also gesture toward the United States’ multiple problems at home and wonder how this exposed presence in Eastern Europe accorded with the long-term foreign and domestic interests of the American people.”


The Geopolitics of Microchips

The US and China are fighting a war. It’s a weird one that’s hard to see. It’s being fought in government offices, in company boardrooms. And it’s being fought over the most important technology in the world: Microchips.

The Washington Times

Do We Really Need More Immigrant Workers?

Trump Predicted European Energy Crisis

Flashback to 2018: President Donald Trump criticized Germany for paying “billions of dollars” to Russia, predicted Europe’s current avoidable energy predicament, and encouraged Germany to pay their fair share — eliciting laughs from German officials.


Capitalism Killed the American West

“In all of his writings he is resistant to the idea that settlers and small-time workers of the American West were the engines of the genocide and despoliation that came to the region in their wake.”

Modern Age

Richard Nixon, New Deal Nationalist

“Stability, security, authority, trust, balance—to the degree that the term “Burkean” means anything in the American context, surely it is in the restoration of these qualities in American public and society in the face of their precipitous decline. Where Moynihan and Nixon departed from the liberals of their time was in their modesty about policy’s ability to do anything about this.”

Modern Age

Screen Epics For The Human Soul

More modest historical films often feel incomplete, insufficient; they demand scope. We intuitively understand that we cannot be part of history unless we are part of it together—part of a crowd, an infantry division, a graduating class, or even a protest.

Real Clear Politics

War and Industrial Policy

War means industry. Wars cannot be fought with supply chains that crisscross a globalized world, where production happens on faraway, little islands in the South China Sea, from where chips can be transported only if airspaces and straits remain open.

New York Times

The Town That Charles Built

Before King Charles III inherited Britain’s throne, he was a prince with strong views on architecture. Poundbury is where he tried to put them into practice.

American Affairs

Palladium Magazine

The End of Industrial Society

The Industrial Revolution stopped before it was ever completed. The aftermath is not a clean and developed world, but lost knowledge and civilizational decline.

The American Mind

Lean Out: Why Women Can’t Have It All
