Apart From Politics

A few thoughts completely unrelated to politics, in a couple of American Spectator columns. In the latter, I deal with this problem into which I sometimes fall:

Sometimes it’s easy to strive too hard to find new meanings in the old familiar Christmas story. The symbology is in some senses profound but also so obvious, and in some ways so simple, that it can seem hackneyed, especially in our modern, jaded world. The impulse is either to give mere lip service to the Christmas message or, for those with a different cast of mind, to try to complicate it in search of some great new insight.

My eventual conclusion is that there’s nothing wrong with simplicity.

Merry Christmas.
