OLLIE RICHARDSON—There are some districts of Paris that not even the police dare go to. The gangs there throw Molotov cocktails at cop cars even when the cops are inside. “No-go zone” is an understatement. There are places where the use of assault rifles to settle scores is normal.

VINCENT KELLEY—It is figures like Epstein who are most invested in the scientific and technological progress that so many well-adjusted, liberal Americans uncritically support. Although Epstein’s actions are especially deplorable, his Epicurean scientistic worldview is one that is held by many others as a default.

THOMAS KNAPP—But another possibility rears its ugly head. In an article for The Daily Beast, investigative journalist Vicky Ward quotes a former senior White House official, in turn quoting Acosta’s response to questions about Epstein during his interview with President Donald Trump’s transition team: “I was told Epstein ‘belonged to intelligence’ and to leave it alone.” Yes, we’re getting that quote at third hand.
