Klavan on Liberty

Author Andrew Klavan presents a commendable defense of liberalism (right-liberalism, in Auster’s terminology) in his Klavan on Culture segment commemorating the victims of the terror attacks on September 11.

It is clear that Klavan is a writer and a thinker rather than a simple political monkey. I appreciate his reflections on ideas and what they are. No materialist, he, who stops to ponder about ideas.

As a side note, isn’t it fascinating how many of the most impressive thinkers on the Right are Jews? For there are not many politically or culturally conservative Jews, and yet they figure prominently in conservative circles. Furthermore, there are even fewer conservative Jews who have become Christians. Yet, such a small set gives us folks like Klavan and Auster.
