Beware the Charging Rhinoceros

American Gumbo with Diane Alden

You don’t want a ‘warfare’ state but neither do you want a state with its head in the sand ignoring the big rhinoceros charging full throttle towards the part sticking out of the sand. No matter how much you want to ignore reality there is always going to be someone out there who wants what you have got or hates your guts for reasons or no reason at all.

The Moral Lib­eral Senior Edi­tor, Diane Alden, was one of’s most pop­u­lar and out­spo­ken pun­dits ( 1999–2008), and before that, a wonk for The Nevada Pol­icy Insti­tute. A former DJ in Geor­gia, Diane of late has been a weekly guest on the East Coast hit program, The Marc Bernier Show. Diane is loved for her quick sense of humor, cre­ative vocab­u­lary, inde­pen­dence of mind, and her pen­e­trat­ing analy­sis of a wide range of polit­i­cal, eco­nomic, and cul­tural issues.
