Twenty Years Now, Where’d They Go?By Bill Kauffman for FRONT PORCH REPUBLIC
The Future of Freedom Foundation has reprinted “The Empire versus Little America,” my speech from what was, in a parallel universe, the epochal 2010 conference that begat the peace group Come Home, America. This gives me an excuse to tell you that my 1995 opuscule America First! Its History, Culture, and Politics, has just been reissued in paperback, with a new preface and epilogue by yours truly. Did I predict, one score ago, pretty much everything that would happen in 2016? Kind of and sort of, to use the two favorite verbal crutches of NPR guests. Just call me Nostradamus. Or, in my wife’s mocking-of-my-mien formulation, Nostrildamus.
