U.S. Intellectual History Blog

The Heavy Hand of Government

For the first time this morning, I find myself unable to blog about what I’d like to blog about due to S-USIH’s 501(c)(3) status.*  So everyone will have to just imagine what I might have to say about Niall Ferguson’s Newsweek cover story and what it tells us about, among other things, contemporary conservative thought, historians as public intellectuals, Newsweek, and the state of the Harvard history department. Or just Google it and read what others are saying.  I’ll have a post up about something completely different in a bit…

* For the record, the title of this post is meant ironically. I happen to think that the 501(c)(3) regulations are totally reasonable. And I’m pretty sure that the world will do just fine without my musings on Niall Ferguson on Barack Obama.

  1. I second Rodrigo’s motion and move that you post on Professor Livingston’s site given that he has used this platform for many of his musings. It would be the collegial thing to do.
