Francis Fukuyama has a great essay in today’s NYT Magazine which describes how neoconservatism came to drive the Iraq war and the current state of the school. I’m not a neoconservative, but I have sympathy with some of its principles, and agree with Fukuyama that it is in shambles. It’s rare to find a tightly written, relatively brief essay that at once draws on history and the current state of Iraq to outline what’s next for one sector of intellectual and political life.
