The Death of Conservatism?

John Derbyshire, historian of mathematics and polymorphously inquisitive commentator, here muses that conservatism is dead, and we shall not see the likes of Maggie Thatcher again.

He has a point, but of course conservatism is always dying out. It's the nature of the beast. And "conservatism" today is a cover term for several different political strands.

I really don't want to go into it now, myself. But read the whole thing.
