conservative stockholm syndrome

Ideas have consequences. That’s what conservative intellectuals have been telling us for more than half a century – longer really as this is a truth that has been affirmed in both Athens and Jerusalem. But for all the lip service, conservative intellectuals don’t seem to believe it – not really. Not with the sort of belief that urges action.

Rather, they suffer from a sort of Stockholm Syndrome, empathizing with and seeking favor from their captors, in this case the American Left. Seth Leibsohn and I discuss the phenomena and the opportunity it presents for a restoration of American originalism.
