    About “Walter Donway

    • Walter Donway

      In 1998, famous New York Times political columnist and expert commentator on language, William Safire, then also a Dana Foundation trustee, tapped Walter Donway to create and edit Cerebrum The Dana Forum on Brain Science now in its 19th year Safire explained to the Foundation s financial vice president, Burton Mirksy, He s a wordsmith And then, in typical Safire fashion, cracked, And he s also a Right winger Far than a Right winger, he was a genuine intellectual drawn to the powerful philosophical revolution launched by Ayn Rand with her novel, Atlas Shrugged, and a dozen books on epistemology the theory of knowledge , ethics, politics, and esthetics that followed until her death in 1982 Her philosophy of Objectivism, primarily a historic defense of reason, individualism, and laissez faire capitalism, brought into existence the modern libertarian movement and Libertarian Party politics Rand herself had no patience with any libertarian politics not rooted in the fundamentals of philosophy, including the relationship between reason, inalienable individual rights, and capitalism.Few Presidential candidates of any party met Rand s stern test of an advocacy of capitalism rooted in reason and individual rights And yet, against the outright socialist, redistributionist, egalitarian hippie politics of Sen George McGovern, the 1972 Democratic Presidential candidate, she threw her support behind Richard Nixon a clear eyed calculated choice among available options Donway rather dutifully, he says became in volved in the Nixon campaign in 1968 and again in 1972.Looking back, he comments This was Boston during the anti war movement and student re bellion the Black Liberation Army and middle class New Left kids were gunning down bank guards So, when I held up my Nixon poster, guys came over, grabbed my collar, and wanted to fight Much later, his support of Nixon, which Donway saw as minor in is life, became the basis of bonding with Safire, who worked for Nixon in both campaigns, became chief Nixon speech writer along with Patrick Buchanan, and, as he commented later, Managed to stay out of jail He did than that, becoming the showcase Libertarian among New York Times columnists but soon an indispensable voice in politics and, in his On Language column in the Sunday Magazine, the country s best known language maven his favored term for it.By then, Donway had published dozens of articles and essays for publications receptive to the libertarian point of view, including as a columnist for Private Practice, journal of the Congress of County Medical Societies, and Human Events, the renowned feisty Washington, D.C weekly paper of conservative opinion edited by Tom Winters At that time, Human Events was almost alone on the media scene as a critic of liberal leftism and advocate of capitalism At the same time, though, he published the lead op ed article in Wall Street Journal In Defense of Decades of Greed, solicited by WSJ editorial page editor, Robert Bartley When accused of not looking at the other side, Donway laughs and points out that all his professional positions, as an executive at Brown University, the Commonwealth Fund the country s earliest major foundation devoted to experimentation with health care programs and medical education , and the Dana Foundation were with certified East Coast Liberal institutions He says, from 1969 until my retirement in 2004, I was a fixture of the Liberal Left intellectual bureaucracy Don t tell me I need to be exposed to that viewpoint In effect, however, he found nothing to refute or even seriously challenge the philosophy of Objectivism The real reform that called to him was of Objectivism itself, which had become cultish, intolerant, and closed to change It was not unusual closer to typical for a powerful new philosophy that set itself against the verities, assumptions, and dogmas of its time In

    • Oh dear me. There's a good six pages of cruft to get through before the book starts, not including a table of contents without hyperlinks. The writer also needs to rely on more than just a spellchecker. Stonewall is a either a place and should be capitalized, or a verb, as in "to stonewall someone." A stone wall is a thing. The first character introduced is both sitting and then walking, in the same paragraph. Gave up.


    • I thoroughly enjoyed O Human Child. A young couple's dream summer near the Catskill mountains becomes more of a nightmare when their disabled child disappears one day and to find him they enlist the help of their only neighbors who aren't who they really appear to be. A quick enjoyable fantastical read.


    • Lush and mesmerizing tale. The reader is entranced as the hero and his family are swept up in this seemingly impossible mystery. A true page-turner, which rarely happens for me. I could not put it down. Prepare to have your disbelief suspended. More, please, Mr. Donway!
