There's lots of good stuff in the current issue of City Journal. I really can't do justice to it with excerpts. Theodore Dalrymple compellingly describes how some young British Muslim men, despite having lived essentially secular, modern, Western lives, choose to reject the West violently. Also compelling is Steven Malanga's recapitulation of the growth of unionization of workers directly and indirectly paid by the government, and these unions' success in lobbying for massive increases in state and local government spending.

Update: Also see Heather Mac Donald's article, or Randall Parker's summary of it.
