I don’t quite know what to make of all this.
Ron Unz, publisher of The American Conservative, is apparently locked in a struggle for control with the Editor, Daniel McCarthy.
McCarthy complains, in essence, that Unz wants to use TAC as a forum for his own lengthy essays on HBD-related topics, instead of the magazine’s usual focus on “realism in foreign policy, a defense of constitutional civil liberties, and a humane Burkean conservatism.”
Unz responds, in essence, that it’s his money and his ideas that have kept the place afloat. In particular, he points out that his lengthy essays account for four out of five of the most-viewed stories at TAC.
So what to think?
Personally, I think Unz has been getting steadily more interesting (and better at statistics) in the last year or so, and he’s now pretty much the best thing TAC has going for it.
