Once in a while someone proposes an utterly absurd idea that is not utterly absurd at all. The incomparable and highly entertaining Andrew Klavan has come up with just such an idea. He calls it the “One State Solution” to the Mid-East problem. In a twist on the debating technique known as reductio ad absurdum Klavan makes some cogent points by recommending a solution to a thousand year old problem that is at the same time perfectly logical and totally impossible.
It is a fun video that makes a serious point.
If one picture is worth a thousand words then a picture than moves and talks must be worth infinitely more. Realizing this, some conservative film makers have come to the fore. Andrew Klavan is one. His style is music and humor. Bill Whittle is another, but with a scholarly approach. He has produced a series that crystallizes the essentials of conservative belief.
Whittle puts an occassional plug in for the Tea Party. We would prefer he hadn’t. We support the Tea Party but the principles he explains are not part of a movement; they did not come from the Tea Party nor are they embraced only by the Tea Party. That is very minor criticism of a very fine work. Here is the first in the series.
