Posted September 21, 2016 By John C Wright

From the Pen of Brad Torgersen

Posted September 7, 2016 By John C Wright

Save for the flattery that overpraises an undeserving author, I must say this is very well said, concise, poignant, and shockingly clear and true. The words below are those of D. G. D. Davidson. http://voxday.blogspot.com/2016/04/500-more-votes.html#c2368806063696487832  D. G. D. Davidson ——————– April 16, 2016 1:05 AM There are three points of view that it seems I cannot […]

High praise indeed from Free Northerner (http://freenortherner.com/2014/11/23/the-bookshelf-john-c-wright/). Let me quote the opening paragraph of each review.
