The 7 Noble Pursuits

John Gorman Updated July 20, 2019 By Daria Shevtsova David Brooks— which … I can’t believe I’m starting a post with his name and who, by the way, is a reliably reactionary moralist, utterly smug and smarmy in his elitist concern-trolling and gentle prodding against inclusion and equity — has written exactly two excellent essays in his canon at.
