Posted: Tuesday, July 24, 2012
In a review of David P. Goldman's book, How Civilizations Die (And Why Islam Is Dying Too) on National Review Online, Claire Berlinski quotes Mr. Goldman as he describes the influence of Prof. Norman Bailey on his life.
He was cured of his maladaptation, he offers, by Norman Bailey, then director of plans at the National Security Council. "My political education began in his lair at the Old Executive Office Building in 1981, when he explained to me that the United States would destroy the Soviet Empire by the end of the 1980s. After I became convinced that the Reagan administration knew what it was doing, my break with LaRouche was inevitable."
