The New Tory Anarchist:

May 29, 2008

I’ll keep this site around for good measure, but everything here is now on a new server at, and that’s where new posts will be showing up. Please redirect links and point your browsers over there.

Switching Servers

May 28, 2008

I don’t anticipate any downtime for the site, but I’m about to switch servers, so expect the unexpected.

We Now Return to Regularly Scheduled Blogging

January 22, 2007

Like Jay-Z or Too $hort, I was in temporary semi-retirement for a while there.  Well, not quite: actually I spent the Christmas and New Year seasons in Texas and have now moved to Wilmington, Delaware.  While I haven’t blogged for a while, I haven’t been completely idle.  My take on “liberaltarianism” is in the current (Jan. 29, 2007) issue of The American Conservative.  I have a couple of reviews pending at other publications — I’ll mention them once they’re safely in print.

Quick Update

October 3, 2006

Daniel Larison and historian William Hay have both responded to that provocative Viereck post of mine. There’s a limit to how far I’ll defend Viereck, but I should be able to answer at least a few of the charges against him. It’ll have to wait, though; blogs demand instant response, but deadlines are more demanding still.

On another topic, I’ve added William Norman Grigg to the blogroll, which I’ve been meaning to do for some time.

Playing Catch-Up

August 14, 2006

Light posting for the nonce as I hurriedly catch up on a few neglected projects. One of those, my review of Jeremy Lott’s In Defense of Hypocrisy, should be in the next TAC, out in two weeks or so.

More Blogging, New Design

August 3, 2006

I still have limited internet access at the moment — more substantial posts will be back by the beginning of next week.

In the meantime, a quick reader survey: is The Tory Anarchist due for a re-design? What blog designs should I be ripping off drawing inspiration from? Email me or leave a comment.

Planes, Trains, Automobiles

July 29, 2006

In an hour or so I have to catch a shuttle from Auburn, Ala. to the Atlanta airport. Get back to D.C. around 7 pm — and then I have to leave again at 3 am(!), taking Amtrak to Connecticut. Needless to say, I wouldn’t be taking a 3 am train if I had any other viable options, but the Amtrak alternatives were more expensive and not much better.

Even though I’ll be in a tech hub of sorts for the next week, I may or may not have reliable internet service. That’s the drawback of using ethernet in the wireless age. Ah well. Blogging will be sporadic if I can’t find a terminal somewhere to exploit, although chances are I will be able to find one.

The summer symposium issue of TAC should be showing up in subscribers’ mailboxes and bookstores right around now. By the way, here is a link to the old Commentary symposium from 1976 that was our inspiration. (It’s a pay archive, but you can get the whole Commentary symposium for the price of one regular article — about $5 or a little less, if I recall. It’s worth it for Robert Nisbet’s contribution alone.)
