On the eccentric fringe

I hate to think of myself as being part of “an eccentric fringe”, but Johann Hari makes a good point about the death of Burkean conservatism in his article about the philosophy of Agatha Christie.

(Also: Hari notices that “The minute a character is described as an idealist […] you’ve found your murderer.” A good observation. Actors were automatically suspect as well.)
