From a short letter to David Brooks (see below):

Your defense of an ideal of moral authority rings cruelly hollow. To justify such an abstraction -and a monarchist one at that- in this context is not only illogical but grossly immoral. Would you really choose an abstraction over human life? Are you that opposed to empiricism and democracy that you have to defend a bankrupt autocracy because it answers your need for simplicity? Have you no shame?
