No Child Is An Island
Freedom’s Orphans: Contemporary Liberalism and the Fate of America’s Children by David L. Tubbs
Princeton University Press, 2007
(232 pages, $27.95, hardcover)
reviewed by Gerald J. Russello
Modern liberalism sometimes seems eminently practical, even attractive: A community of free and equal citizens, each (reasonably) exercising his choices as he wishes, so long as those choices do not harm others, with the government there to ensure that no one vision, or any vision, of the good life is imposed on others or considered superior to any other.

"Here we do not concede one square millimeter of territory to falsehood, folly, contemporary sentimentality, or fashion. We speak the truth, and let God be our judge. . . . Touchstone is the one committedly Christian conservative journal."
