"Nothing would advance me faster in the world," wrote a young law student, "than the reputation of having been educated by Mr. Wythe, for such a man as he casts a light upon all around him."[1] So wrote William Munford as he summed up the attitude of the more ambitious youths of revolutionary Virginia. To be taught by George Wythe—as were Henry Clay, Thomas Jefferson, John Marshall and "enough other founding fathers to populate a small standing army"[2]—was the first step on the road to success.

CURRENT ISSUE

April 2014

Around the world, people are struggling to throw off authoritarianism, with deeply mixed results. From Egypt to Venezuela, determined people build networks to overthrow their regimes, but as yet we have not learned to live without Leviathan. In this issue, Michael Malice and Gary Dudney discuss their glimpses inside totalitarian regimes, while Sarah Skwire and Michael Nolan look at how totalitarian regimes grind down the individual--and how individuals fight back.

The struggle for our lives and freedom is a struggle for beauty; it begins inside each of us.
