Placeholder Image
WASHINGTON -- Perusing the wires on a deadline morn, I was struck by a constellation of intellectuals struggling to translate the relative meanings of Brexit, Donald Trump and the West’s populist surge against elites. At least three bright fellows caught my eye: columnist Ross Douthat of The New York Times; Daniel Drezner, professor of international politics at Tufts University and a Washington Post blogger; and New Yorker writer George Saunders. I’m grateful to each for his contribution to this column.
