LRC pick
Was Russell Kirk wrong?
Gasp! Maybe he was in calling classical liberalism (in itself good) ‘conservatism’ (different but also in itself good). The l- and c-words, one can say, have relative meanings anyway but today in common discourse the c-word has been dragged so far leftwards that it’s all but meaningless (as if the title of this blog meant we were on the side of Mr Bush and Faux News and their big-government politics and warmongering).
