Pulled His Punches

Rod writes:

I’ve also noticed in all the public discussion of “Crunchy Cons” that it is very hard on the Right to admit to any questions or doubts about the superiority of free-market economics. Re-reading my own book, I detect a clear sense of punch-pulling out of fear that to speculate about the deleterious effects on society of free-market economics is to out oneself as a crypto-leftie. My book was unfortunately timid in parts because I was (unconsciously) censoring myself, fearing backlash.

Who would have guessed that after all that, Rod is even less in favor of the free market?
