I’d invite you, for example, to cast your eye over the new issue of National Affairs, the right-leaning policy journal edited by Yuval Levin. You’ll find nine different articles that hang together coherently around what could well be the dominant style of conservatism of the coming years. This is the conservatism of skeptical reform.Hm. But, I suppose you could say I am for the skeptical reform of Machiavellian self-help books.
Also, I'm just going to put it out there that the picture of Irving Kristol next to the "Brooklyn Burkeans" teaser on the front page of the National Affairs site looks just like Yuval Levin in 20 years.
