America, The Good

by Jonah Goldberg

Yesterday a friend suggested I repost this old piece for the Fourth. The offices are of course deserted but I can still mess with the Corner. So here goes.

Back in 2007 I was invited to debate at Oxford the question of whether or not it was a good thing the United States of American had ever been established in the first place. It was a really fun experience, particularly since most of my debate opponents were loons. I wrote it up here. You can scroll down for my prepared remarks. The whole thing seems at least a little apt for America’s birthday. 

Happy Independence Day.
