Conservative Commentariat Surveys the Wreckage


A dozen thinkers of the Movement Conservative Epoch stare into the abyss and scratch their heads.


Want it in a nutshell?


Movement Conservatism

Minus

Delusive Reckless Greed

Minus

Scapegoating Hatespeech

Minus Authoritarian Desire to Rule or be Ruled

Equals

Literally Nothing At All.

And Bill Kristol actually said this?

"I can't help but admire some of my fellow conservatives' loyalty to the small-government cause. It reminds me of the nobility of Tennyson's Light Brigade, as it charges into battle: 'Theirs but to do and die.' Maybe it would be better, though, first to reason why."

Holy shit.
