Corey Robin

Corey Robin is one of my favorite lefty observers explaining what conservatism is and how it works. He argues that conservatism is ultimately not really about public policy but about preserving hierarchies of power in the private sphere. His essay Reclaiming the Politics of Freedom is the best summa I've seen him provide on what this means for the left and right both in ideals and practical politics.
