From the Niskanen Center, Christopher Robichaud on how facts aren’t enough to save liberal democracy; diversity and disagreement are the solution, not the problem; and on the future of liberalism and the politicization of everything. Steve Horwitz on liberalism in the balance. Are liberals on the wrong side of history? Adam Gopnik on new books that interrogate the premises of the Enlightenment. “You are famous for the ‘End of History’ quote.
