Another Neocon Mag Down the Drain?

Unlike my old friend David Franke, I cannot feel nostalgic for the dying Human Events. I first subscribed to it in the 1960s, but for one year only, becauseĀ  I found it so disappointing. In the 1940s and 1950s, until it was sold, it was Old Right and non-interventionist, as David notes. The sale, to New Rightist warmongers, was arranged by spook-Wall Street lawyer and later CIA director Bill Casey, who had also incorporated National Review. A very bad guy. Imagine, Human Events had once published such men as Frank Chodorov, but spook Bill Buckley hated him, and also had him defenestrated from ISI, which he had founded. The original name, Intercollegiate Society of Individualists, was changed to Intercollegiate Studies Institute. But as important as this unfortunate history is, the Old Right is back, thanks to Murray Rothbard and Ron Paul, and the millions they influence. The bloodthirsty neocons may have the establishment. We have the cause of peace and freedom, and the future.
