The Low, Low Price of Serfdom

Convenience, wrote Columbia University law professor Tim Wu, is as much a force driving mankind’s political evolution as any of the more tangible and conspicuous factors that dominate daily life. So many modern appliances have made what were once minor chores unthinkably exacting burdens. Convenience, Wu wrote, trumps preference. Streaming video services, to name just one example, have rendered the rigors of the clock obsolete. But that convenience has also inured us to sacrifice. Once anathema, viewers have re-learned how to sit passively through a 120-second commercial break. It’s a small price to pay to enjoy our newfound freedom from wait.

A Hill to Die on

Justice both delayed and denied.

According to Senate Judiciary Committee Democrat Chris Coons, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when she was a minor, did not want to come forward. In an eerie echo of Anita Hill’s public ordeal, her accusations were “leaked to the media.” With her confidentiality violated, Ford had no choice but to go public. Coons could not say where that leak came from, but he did confess that “people on committee staff” had access to the letter in which Ford made her allegations. Draw your own conclusions.

Ari Fuld and the Truth About Palestinians

Terror is a choice.

Ari Fuld described himself on Twitter as a marketer and social media consultant “when not defending Israel by exposing the lies and strengthening the truth.” On Sunday, a Palestinian terrorist stabbed Fuld at a shopping mall in Gush Etzion, a settlement south of Jerusalem. The Queens-born father of four died from his wounds, but not before he chased down his assailant and neutralized the threat to other civilians. Fuld thus gave the full measure of devotion to the Jewish people he loved. He was 45.
