Good Mr. Derbyshire,
… The TNC nail is one you must strike with a hammer repeatedly. I have recently moved to New York and I associate with the Young Republicans and the occasional The New Criterion social gathering (that’s about it for young conservatives). It saddens me that no Young Republicans (to which I have spoken) read The New Criterion. None who I spoke to at a TNC function read the Claremont Review of Books.
This is incredible and disappointing. National Review may be a lodestone of the conservative movement and should supplement the literary diet of any fellow-traveler, but all those interested in the long fight, conservatism’s role in history and culture, our first principles and our future, must consider it their duty to read both TNC and the CRB. To do less is to be uneducated.
Roger on that, Sir. I am sorry I did not include CRB in my advertisement, the more especially as I have a piece (on Kipling) in the next issue of that splendid journal. Fill up your house with conservative culture!
