Why Conservatism Died

12th July 2017

ZMan waxes delightfully dyspeptic today.

Full disclosure: I read (and like) both Tyler Cowan and Raihan Salam (who writes for NR).

That said, I agree with this:

One of the reasons many of us gave up on conventional politics is that in the mainstream, guys with weird, unpronounceable names, from foreign lands keep demanding we change our country to suit their needs. That would be tolerable if the response was “shut up and learn how to be Americans.” Instead, the political class goes out of its way to celebrate these people. Our rulers make it clear that the opinions of newly arrived boat people count for more than the opinions of the natives, who made the country possible.
