Why You Should Be Reading Daniel Larison

The next line is quite amusing: “Take the spirit of freedom blowing through Cairo’s squares and bring it to Tehran’s squares.” If the spirit of freedom is abroad in the region, it is not something that can be directed or controlled. That’s why it’s the spirit of freedom.

Larison has made stating what ought to be obvious into an art form, a rhetorical return of the obvious that can be as refreshing as stating something more seemingly original and is almost always far more necessary.
