From Joshua
  • Look homeward, America. Caleb Stegall on Bill Kauffman. American Little Englandism. I like it! To paraphrase Gore Vidal, one of Kauffman’s unlikely heroes, the real split lies between those who love the old American republic and those progressive dreamers who would sell their patrimony for a bowl-full of the centralized, mechanized American Empire. We’re a collection of throwbacks and throwaways, retreads and retrofits, hillbillies and hell-raisers, poet politicians and insubordinate patriots.
  • The neglected tradition of high-church conservatism. What would Burke do?
