Remembering rave reviews of C. Bradley Thompson’s lecture at the last OCON, I was eager to see what he would say in his TOS article, “The Decline and Fall of American Conservatism.” I read it just now. Wow.
Wait, let me try that again: freakin’ wow!
It is eye-opening and jaw-dropping, a stunning analysis that gathers up the oddities we have been seeing in the rise of the Republicans, explains them with some wonderful philosophical detective work, and frames it all in terms of fundamental principles having life and death importance to us all. C. Bradley Thompson brings the goods, and I now understand the cryptic, stammered, rave reviews of his lecture — along the lines of, “It was amazing: I kept thinking it couldn’t get any worse, and then he would reveal a whole new level of badness!” But don’t take my word for it: go see for yourself.
If this doesn’t cement TOS’s place on the map, I don’t know what will. Thanks and kudos, guys!
Update from Diana: Brad Thompson will be speaking in Boulder on October 5th and in Denver (Arvada) on October 7th. Both talks will be on education. For more information, see this page and/or e-mail Lin Zinser.
