Reflecting on “Suicide of the West” by Jonah Goldberg
Collin Brendemuehl: Jonah Goldberg’s work is useful. It’s a little short-sighted in its rejection of Burke. He paints a proper picture of the swamp. He understands the problem of Marx and Darwin in politics. And he clarifies the conservative principle well that economic class is mutable.
Pat Nicklaus: We recently moved to Missouri. I was excited to meet other like-minded conservatives and I got extremely jazzed when it seemed like I was meeting several. “Seemed like” being the operative words in that sentence.
