Another Cheer for Regress

I would like to start the new year off by posting the link to George Will's recent James Madison lecture at Princeton, "Can Someone from the Class of 1771 Save the Nation from Someone from the Class of 1879?" Will himself is someone from the class of 1968. This is a video of the lecture. I have not found the transcript on the web.

This lecture is another of his serious assaults against the Wilsonian progressive project that President Barack Obama and Pelosi & Reid's 111th Congress have trampled the Constitution and loud and clear expressions of public opinion to advance these last two years.

This lecture follows upon but does not repeat his Cato Institute Milton Friedman Prize lecture, "Not a State Broken People" in which he introduced the metaphor of the two Princetonians.
