To be published in September: John Derbyshire’s We Are Doomed: Reclaiming Conservative Pessimism.
It’s already on Amazon; Here is the only description I could find. Summarized: Conservatism should be about realism, and reality is that we’re sunk.
Derb is like most pundits, scholars, and Western leaders in general: trying to find a new angle that will bring fame, not to do something that actually will help.
What else is there? Bloviate, publish, and be a celebrity, for tomorrow we die.
