The first is that these debates have always and only occurred in the wake of some sort of crisis. In the early and late 1970s, we were busily turning down our thermostats and waiting in line at gas pumps, following the Arab and Iranian oil cutoffs. This year’s debate is conducted in the shadow of the Persian Gulf War.
