To the Editor:
I have just read Irwin M. Stelzer’s outstanding article, “Clintonism Unmasked” [May] , and wanted to thank him for laying out a comprehensive and succinct outline of what the Clinton administration is trying to do.
I agree with Mr. Stelzer that the core Clinton philosophy is “a collectivist faith in the state as the source and fount of economic vitality and social health.” It is astounding to me that only in Pyongyang, Havana, and Washington does this philosophy hold any credibility. The defeat of the Clinton “stimulus” package is at least a step in the right direction; but, as Mr. Stelzer concludes, “it will be a tough four years.”
