Welcome to Present Discontents, the all-too-infrequently updated blog of me, Keir Bradwell, a 22-year-old MPhil student at Queens’ College, Cambridge.

Academically, I’m interested in Cold War-era political thought, and especially in the end of the ‘end-of-ideology’ thesis. This blog should begin to involve more of that soon (I keep meaning to write about Kuhn…), but I suspect my next few posts are going to be about political tactics, the future of conservative politics, and the reception of effective altruism.

Please subscribe if you fancy a read (when I finally finish my ever-growing pile of drafts…)
