Just an excellent piece. It was an insight I know I could have gotten only from you. BTW, just finished The General and The President and it served to answer the question I always had which was why did MacArthur just fade away. The senate hearing appear to have revealed how out of step he was as well his campaign "tour" which revealed his extremism and his unsuitability as a candidate. Thank you

Another thought-provoking post, Bill. The jab at English professors reminded me of your lecture about Reagan and the end of the Cold War (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExwSBuX6iw0&t=4628s), which I re-listened to this morning during my commute.
