Important as they are, Books Won't Answer the World's Problems

"Do not fall into political bibliolatry; in particular, do not regard Kirk's Works as written by one endowed with the prophetic afflatus...  Alas, no small book, or big one either, has been written to tell us honestly and practically what to do about all these modern problems, nor will one such ever be published, not even by a conservative author."

-- Russell Kirk, The Politics of Prudence, p.47
