It seems that the new thing in higher education, since 2001, is the development of
Homeland Security curricula. Many Universities not only have multidisciplinary academic programs organized around
Homeland Security, but are even starting to offer
Master of Arts in Security Policy Studies and
Master of Homeland Security degrees. Peter Klein just posted to the LRC Blog about how he was recently asked to help develop the curriculum for a new
Master of Homeland Security degree at the University of Missouri.
The first step toward challenging the horror of politics in our age is to demand that people have the decency to call things by their proper names.

So let’s cut out the Heimat bullshit and call this what it is: a Master of War degree.
Cue the Bob Dylan.
