Being a conservative

First Libertas, then La Shawn Barber. When two of one’s favourite blogs discuss a particular article, attention needs to be paid. So I linked to Andrew Klavan’s article in the City Journal and, as an extra bonus, found his personal website that told me about thrillers that he has written. Memo to self: go and read one or more of Andrew Klavan’s books.

Meanwhile, I suggest our readers enjoy this wonderfully realistic piece, called “The Big White Lie”. Its basic argument is that leftism, having failed in real life, exists because it is more polite than gimlet-eyed conservatives.

His examples are American, which means some of our readers will not be interested. But others might find the piece clever and amusing, as well as capable of being translated to other countries.
