The Tragic View

NRO's Victor Davis Hanson argues that the current crisis marks a turn, or re-turn, to the tragic understanding of the state's, each individual's actually, limitations and possibilities.
In hard times, as in war, questions arise that were once considered taboo. As we approach $15 trillion run up in aggregate national debt, and confront the reality of a welfare state that is predicated on flawed assumptions about everything from demography to human nature, a rendezvous with brutal reality is now upon us.
Another name for our "rendezvous with brutal reality":  The Great Reckoning
