When Out And About Tomorrow

I’m going to give you all a little bit of homework.

Read this piece – “Risk, Relativism And Resources“, by Kevin Williamson, from National Review.   It’s a brilliant piece – and a beefy chunk of reading – on how risk-tolerance and risk-aversion affects peoples’ political choices.

Then tune in tomorrow, when I’ll be talking with Mr. Williamson on the Northern Alliance Radio Network, mostly (but certainly not entirely) about this piece.

And then think: how can we conservatives apply this to the task ahead of us – saving the country?

And I’ll also have David and David on the show:

No, not that David and David, although that’d be cool too.  No, I’ll have Senators Dave Thompson and Dave Osmek on the show as well!

Hope to see you then!

  1. “Progressives and those who sympathize with them are economically risk-averse compared with conservatives.”

    This explains why women glom onto liberalism more than men. A women will take security over liberty almost every time – even security requiring theft.

  2. That’s a really good piece, Mitch. The insight about Malthusian tendencies especially rings true. What’s always astonished me is that these Malthusians are able to portray themselves as being the party of the people.
