Freund vs. Young
In the coming days (weeks?) my friend Chuck Freund and I will be exchanging thoughts on the prospects for liberalism in the Middle East and what it might take to establish open societies in the Arab world.

You can follow the above link to know more about Chuck, but I can briefly report he's a senior editor at Reason magazine (where I'm a contributing editor), he's written extensively on politics and culture for Reason, Slate, the Washington Post, the New Republic and countless other publications, and he has developed an unhealthy interest in the Middle East (and, of late, Arab pop music videos).

We might have trouble disagreeing, but Chuck has never had any trouble being interesting.
