Here Come the Right-Wing Hippies

Well, that’s the theory, anyhow, to be found in this book I reviewed for the VCReporter called Crunchy Cons.

Interestingly, I interviewed the likable author, young former National Review writer Rod Dreher, but about a third of the way through the session, he abruptly stopped answering questions (via email) and stopped responding to further contacts.

Were my questions too tough? (Among other topics, I challenged his assertion that the White House’s overseas-only $53 methane-to-markets measure was a meaningful response to global warming.)

I don’t know why he walked away (virtually). But I still give Dreher credit for saying that there is nothing conservative about industrial farming, McMansion developments, and lousy pop culture. Popular success that trashes the culture and the planet is nothing to be proud of, and will only become uglier in time. I think leftists should applaud that recognition of reality.
