Ethnicity, Demography, and Immigration

Most of earth’s human inhabitants are somewhere between being either profoundly conservative or profoundly liberal in their thinking about ethnicity, demography, and immigration. Some are vitally interested in their own personal ethnic backgrounds, and others are not. Some are threatened by demographical changes, and others are not. Some resist the very idea of immigrants, and others do not.

The American Idolatry of the Founding Fathers

Two articles on the second page of the July Fourth edition of The Island Packet and the re-printing of the Declaration of Independence on the editorial page prompted this essay to be written on Independence Day in 2018. The first was a story about what the President legally and constitutionally can and cannot do with respect to the Mueller investigation regarding Russian interference in the 2016 election. The second was how difficult it has become for Prof. Alan Dershowitz to live among his liberal neighbors on Martha’s Vineyard for the summer. He has insisted that constitutionally the President can pardon anyone he wants, including the President himself, should things get too dicey for him in the Russia investigation.

Fascism occurs when a gifted leader convinces a group of disaffected people to rally around his leadership.

Evita Resurrected

In 1978, the great musical composer Andrew Lloyd Webber launched another highly successful musical in London. Evita evolved out of a chance visit to Argentina by Lloyd Webber. There he encountered the story of Eva Duarte Peron. He said he first saw her captivating countenance on an Argentine postage stamp, and from there his interest rapidly grew. The rest is West End, Broadway, and world musical history. The lyricist for Lloyd Webber’s early productions was Tim Rice. Evita was their third major collaboration. When the vastly creative composer returned to London, he and Tim Rice worked out the story line for a new musical-as-opera, which is essentially what many of Lloyd Webber’s recent shows are. The plot of the musical is based on biographies of Eva and Juan Peron that were written shortly after Peron was removed from the power of the Argentine presidency.
