Irving Kristol

The conservative movement has lost one of its wisest, most astute and most interesting thinkers -- a man who built important institutions of the movement in addition to writng some of its most astute texts. Irving was also a very generous man, and always welcomed younger conservatives like myself with a special warmth and encouragement. His most famous remark -- that a neo-conservative is a liberal who was mugged by reality -- is wholly typical of the kind of wit and insight that characterized his work. I miss him as a guide and I miss him as a friend. He lived a long and fruitful life, and that's all we can really wish for ourselves.
