He might have a 5 a.m. lift with his team in a few hours, but that won’t stop him from playing another round of beer pong. Unabashedly, he will wear his Make America Great Again hat around campus and might even pair it with a Reagan Bush ’84 t-shirt. He hasn’t read Locke
The only way to save Western civilization is to convince more people that leftism—not liberalism—is a nihilistic force. Quite literally, whatever the Left touches it ruins.

Before I get into the firing of Kevin Williamson, let me say this: Williamson is a talented, unique, and compelling writer. I have complimented his work privately to him and publicly on social media. Even when I strongly disagreed with him—particularly with his harsh assessment of Trump supporters—I still envy his way with
Colleges are hostile environments for young Americans on the rightward end of the political spectrum. Like any living being in a hostile environment, these students have developed a wide variety of strategies for surviving. These strategies affect the way they think and act.
