This transcript of a talk by Wilfred McClay on Michael Oakeshott’s place in the history of modern conservatism, and this essay by Fred Sanders on the importance of the medium and the message in Calvin and Hobbes (and what that means for evangelicals, but I skipped over that part), are two things that I found well worth reading this week, though I don’t really have anything to add to them. Perhaps you might also find them worth your time.

Yeah, I liked the part about how he was a "corrective" thinker whose main concern was to criticize others' ideological excess rather than propose his own version.
