A panel of neoconservatives was asked to choose the top American conservative books of all time. Left completely off the entire list is anything by Russell Kirk, Richard Weaver, or Robert Nisbet. Instead, we get either the most predictable and perfunctory answers (e.g., The Federalist (Papers) and Democracy in America) or biographies of Edmund Burke, etc. Come on. A few libertarian titles are sprinkled in there, though naturally of the safe and respectable kind. I find a handful of titles with which I agree, but horrendous overall. And The Road to Serfdom at number one? I understand its significance, but the number one best conservative book of all time? You have got to be kidding.
Sirius radio host Mike Church says the good guys need to populate their own list. I absolutely agree.
