In response to The Conservative Woman: Death of Sir Roger Scruton, greatest moral guide of our time,
Sir Roger opened my eyes to conservative philosophy and the gentle yet persuasive power of his arguments said in his wonderful voice was a treat to behold.
He also coined the simple yet extensive definition of conservatism that ‘conservatives are people who love something actual and want to retain it.’
I can think of no greater modern influence for those who love one’s country and customs. He was a towering intellect, a gentleman and his passing is a sad day.
I hope the so-called Conservatives who treated him so badly last year are feeling a deep sense of shame this morning. I doubt it, unfortunately.
So sad to hear this news. He felt like a kindred spirit.
I had hoped you’d live to 100, Sir Roger, as your country needed you.
Enjoy your eternal reward.
