Warning against modern conservatives' nostalgia for an earlier era, in the Los Angeles Times:
"The heyday of the 'institution builders' was a low-water mark for conservatism's political success (that's why they built institutions!). Conservatism hardly lacks for top-flight intellectuals these days, but the intellectuals aren't the avant-garde anymore. Thanks to their success at ... spreading ideas, the battle has been joined, and now is not the time to wax nostalgic for the planning sessions."
