    My grandfather was one of a cohort of students sent from Afghanistan to the United States for college in the 1930s --- he was "Charlie Shalizi" to his classmates at Urbana, who were mostly unable to pronounce "Abdussattar". He very much liked and admired America, though of course he knew it wasn't perfect. While he could easily have stayed here, he went back to Afghanistan because he wanted to help his native country be more like the America he knew.

    Today, there is an important political force in America which is dedicated to making that wish come true. It is large, splendidly organized, ruthlessly dedicated, tactically savvy, and overwhelmingly powerful, indeed the most powerful force in American politics; I mean the Republican Party.
