opinion BillGalston Indeed. opinion BillGalston Dem dern furriners! opinion BillGalston Perhaps liberal democracy is just not good at solving problems. Endless debt, failing infrastructure and economies that don't meet people's needs, etc. Liberal democracy is a failure in the post-Cold War era. opinion BillGalston And you published this opinion. WSJ I am losing confidence in you.
opinion BillGalston Actually the biggest threats are from media outlets owned by News Corp.
