Dr. K’s Triumph of the Will

Email Print

Krauthammer in February 2001pre-9-11. :

“Bush, like Reagan, understands that the U.S. can reshape, indeed remake, reality on its own.”

“America is in a position to reshape norms, alter expectations and create new realities. How? By unapologetic and implacable demonstrations of will.”

How does this differ from Nietzsche, from Robespierre, from Lenin?

Or from Hitler?

And he lies about Reagan, of course. After all, like his imaginary America, Krauthammer gets to create new realities, every day.
