From LRC
  • Market correction in academia.
  • The Jewish ideal of freedom. Now this idea of individualism understandably worries the palæo-conservatives including drawbridge Catholics like the SSPX (‘error has no rights’): are classical liberals only one jump removed from the mainline, the modern left and the neocon right? Community, particularly family, they say, über alles. (The left, the ape of Catholicism, wants you to think that the state is your family and church and that libertarians are selfish losers.) I’m with what I understand about Burke. Many but not all traditions and small institutions are humanely good; somehow they have to answer to a higher standard.
  • A success story of voluntariness: private animal rescues.
