The Disappeared: A Conversation with Roger Scruton

Play

Roger Scruton discusses with Richard Reinsch in this edition of Liberty Law Talk his newest novel, The Disappeared. The story revolves around sex-trafficking in a northern city in present-day England, similar to the horrific disclosures of the recent Rotherham Report. It is also about the kind of society Britain has become. Interwoven in the novel is the fallout from the enthronement of multiculturalism, the welfare state, the cult of autonomy, and the loss of religious faith, all of which have brought a host of (unintended?) consequences. Many things have disappeared.
