Sorry, this story is a little bit late. I missed the announcement at TAC because the title of the posts was “An Inconvenient Truth: The Bush Administration Was a Disaster.” I just assumed it was more TAC style Bush bashing so I didn’t bother to read it. This post, about Human Events shutting down their print edition, directed my attention to it.
Policy Review, a publication of the Hoover Institute, was not exactly paleo friendly, but I do think the demise of a “conservative” scholarly publication is worth noting. There are already very few identifiably “conservative” journals compared to many leftist journals that fill every conceivable niche. (Note, I am using conservative here in the sense that it is generally understood today. I recognize that neoconservatism is not really conservative, hence my use of quotation marks.) I’m afraid this does not boded well for conservatism from a meta standpoint, apart from the fact that Policy Review itself was a source of modern “conservative” orthodoxy and wasn’t a paleo friendly publication.
