Now It’s Leo Strauss

Every few years the New York Times discovers that some neoconservatives revere the late political philoshopher Leo Strauss. And so, every few years, the Times worries about Strauss. This year, that old devil Strauss is even scarier because Neocons are even scarrier. Yesterday, the New York Times did a big piece on Leo Strauss and his supposed disciples running the world. They even had a sidebar (not on the web) with mugshots of various “Leo-Cons.”

That’s all fine and dandy. But just once it would be nice to see a similar take on all of the liberal figures in government influenced by the writings of Karl Marx.
