Kauffman Speaks

It is extremely rare indeed to attend an “Old Right” speaking event and find the entire audience, including the liberals and neocons on hand, rolling in the aisles. But such was the case when Bill Kauffman spoke at CATO yesterday afternoon about antiwar conservatives and his new book. I certainly can’t reproduce his charm, sharp wit, and ?lan, so I’d suggest that you watch a video of the event here.

There are two lines from his talk worth repeating:

“Why should political discourse be delimited by Arthur Schlesinger’s ghost and Bill Bennett’s ghost writer.”

“War: it spreads venereal disease, if not quite democracy.”
