Liberal Fascism

LF Blog Thumbs Up

From a reader:

Hi Mr. G –

The LF blog has quickly become the most interesting

thing on NRO.  Give us more debate and comments on

nature of modernity, the history of the Bush family,

fascism in the academy (in both senses).

Thanks for some thought-provoking reading.  To reward

you for your efforts, I’m going out to buy LF as soon

as my local stores get resupplied, even thought I

suspect I disagree with you on the essential nature of

fascism.  Keep up the good work stimulating a

clarifying discussion.

Me: Thanks! It’s not entirely clear that I’m not wasting my time here. But I think it’s worthwhile, or at least I hope it is.

However, for the record, I am a Corner man first and foremost. I am merely on temporary assignment here.
