Rod Dreher e-mails in response to this Jonah post:
I should have been clearer in my Beliefnet posting. What I regret is not that I held back criticism of the free market, but that I ought not to have tiptoed around it at several points in my book, instead of writing boldly. A couple of reviewers picked this up, correctly intuiting that I presented my criticism on two or three occasions with weird anxiety. It’s a stylistic concern. I think they have a point. This is my fault, nobody else’s. BTW, I’m stuck inside all day writing a new chapter for the paperback version, in which I’ll address the main criticisms Jonah made in his magnum opus essay. (I can’t do all of them, because his essay is as long as the chapter is supposed to be).
