America beware: Wealth taxes will assuredly succeed in reducing wealth inequality… by driving out wealth. Globally the left has long obtained economic equality through poverty. Whether the same formula will soon be applied here is unclear; what is quite clear…

The border security debate illustrates that the left’s agenda requires two suspensions of disbelief. The first is needed to make the left’s proposal seem palatable; the second is needed to make it seem plausible. Such suspensions apply not just to…
