Two From Front Porchers

  • Mark T. Mitchell "describes the renewed interest in animal power among some small farmers" — Farmers Ditch Tractors for…Oxen?

  • James Matthew Wilson looks at "how two ostensibly competing strains within American conservatism can be rendered coherent: the Aristotelian understanding of politics as ordered to the Good, and the modern decentralist understanding (pick your exemplary figure, from Burke to Jefferson, and beyond) of politics as chiefly arrangement and distribution of powers with a principled disposition in favor of the limited and the local" — Abortion and American Federalism.
