Derek Draplin has searched the archives for selections from Russell Kirk’s thirteen-year run as a syndicated columnist. Here he introduces what will be a periodic feature for the Bookman.
Real progress consists in the movement of mankind toward the understanding of norms, and toward conformity to norms. Real decadence consists in the movement of mankind away from the understanding of norms, and away from obedience to norms.
Russell Kirk, Enemies of the Permanent Things, 1969
