This piece by Charles Murray, on the other hand, requires little comment. It's a delight. You want to read something really conservative? Here's a conservative argument for you: the three worst ideas in history are logic, reason and artistic genius.

Unfortunately, everything and anything you like can get the same treatment. Democracy leads to vulgarity and dictatorship. Faith leads to fanaticism and obscurantism. Family? Philip Larkin told us what our Mums and Dads do to us. But the Law of Unintended Consequences is as conservative a statute as you'll find on the books, and universal in its application. Enjoy.
