Comment on: Roger Scruton dies of cancer, aged 75
Scruton was a clever man, insightful, thoughtful and often inspirational- a true intellect and a rare thing. Although you may disagree with his views, his writing was a pleasure to read. Like others, Jordan Petersen, Douglas Murray, Lionel Shriver and Brendan O'Neill included he was maligned, usually by those unwilling or unable to read his work.
