Still A Giant Among Pygmies


Sixteen years ago today Sam Francis died. What an immense, ongoing loss. As I wrote in December 2019 in Chronicles, Francis’ essays and columns from decades ago are a better guide to what is happening than virtually anything now being written. And there is no better way to wean someone from the jumble of cliches, platitudes, irrelevancies, and non-sequiturs that comprise the corpus of respectable conservative thought than by introducing that person to Sam Francis.

So, if you want to advance the cause of truth and strike a blow against the mediocrities who hounded Sam in life, consider observing this somber anniversary by sharing something Sam wrote with a friend or colleague. Just don’t be surprised when your friend asks for more.
