This article is example #8,933 of the importance of Jack Hunter as an Old Right, non-neocon writer and speaker. Jack discusses his meeting with Kirkpatrick Sale, the radical decentralist who had enough principle to have his name removed from the masthead of The Nation when that magazine began drooling over Obama.
Sale, whom I have also met, and who even contributed a blurb to Who Killed the Constitution? (which I wrote with Kevin Gutzman), is a very interesting person. Long associated with the Left (though not the managerial, centralist Clinton/Biden/Obama kind), Sale thinks the present system is evil and corrupt beyond repair, that it is possible for political societies (yes, ours included) to be simply too big, and that the only solution is a radical decentralization in which the imperial temptation to force every neighborhood into a centrally planned mold is set aside, and where everyone can simply find a place he likes.Details
