Joseph Sobran, 1946 – 2010
Joseph Sobran , his race run, died on Thursday.
An editor at The National Review for 18 of his 21-year career at TNR, if you do not know of him, it is perhaps because he was long ago sacrificed on the neoconservative altar of perpetual war and thereafter became another of those “who must not be named” by the mainstream media.
“No one so explicitly or deftly connects what is happening in the world today to the loss of our freedom and the systematic usurpations of government — absolutely no one. Sobran is a cross between Mencken, Nock, and Cato’s letters.”
— Sheldon Richman, editor of The Freeman: Ideas on Liberty.
“Perhaps the finest columnist of our generation.”
— Patrick J. Buchanan
“Joe Sobran is a national treasure.”
— Llewellyn Rockwell Jr
