Andrew Klavan and Queen Victoria – posted by [Peter Robinson] @ The Corner @ NRO
Today on Uncommon Knowledge, novelist and screenwriter Andrew Klavan, author of the new thriller, Empire of Lies, explains why he’s no longer a liberal:
The thing I like best about being a conservative is that I don’t have to lie. I don’t have to pretend that men and women are the same. I don’t have to declare that failed or oppressive cultures are as good as mine.
Leftism has outlived its own failure by hiding itself within the most labyrinthine construct of social delicacy since Victoria was queen.
