Oz Conservative:  An Australian traditionalist conservative site

It's now a number of years since I have linked to the above site so I thought it was time for me to give blogger Mark Richardson a shout-out.  I write from Brisbane and he writes from Melbourne so we have different priorities in writing about State matters but we both move far beyond geographical concerns.  I don't think there any major differences between us in our attitudes but I may be a bit further towards the libertarian end of conservatism.

And I occasionally mention topics that are completely forbidden even to conservatives -- like IQ, race and social class.  All three are immensely powerful influences on what people say, think and do, so that may be the reason why any mention of them is taboo.  We must not understand too much.  But I am an academic  psychologist with a research background in all three topics so I foolishly think that understanding and explaining such influences lies within my remit

Mark has up at the moment an excellent interview with a black Cardinal in which the Cardinal asserts the importance of national identity

    I wish there were people on the left to contend with, say, Thomas Sowell, who would match his ability to make sense. His ability to subdivide the matter at hand into fine grains of facts. His ability to reach far into the matter at hand and then look at it from an unexpected angle, similar to how humour works. Do they even exist on the left beyond people with different degrees of insidious thoughts and dark hearts?

    Virtues will make a man go far and beyond. Intelligence makes the journey interesting.
