The American traditionalist philosopher Jim Kalb is back posting regularly after taking some time away from his website to prepare a book.
I was particularly struck by two of his recent posts on the issue of crime. They are well worth reading:
From the Great Society to the Big House
The soul of man under liberalism
I was also interested to read in one of the articles Jim Kalb links to that in the UK the average rate of homicide with a firearm in the years 1890-92 was only 1 per year (when the UK had a population of 30 million). It seems to me that this is a kind of civilisational achievement which has been lost along the way.
