Charles Murray was recently interviewed by Bill Kristol (who made my annual list of the 100 most influential living people of all time). Murray himself might one day make the list for the enormous impact his 1984 book Losing Ground had on public policy.

I could listen to Murray talk for hours. The man exudes gravitas.

Kristol worships Murray, once calling him America’s leading living social scientist. Despite being a lightning rod on college campuses, Murray is whined and dined by the elite.
