In The Mail: Liberal Fascism

As Jonah Goldberg has written recently, the Amazon page for his upcoming book has become one of the frontlines in the cold civil war: when it’s not being hacked, it’s subject to the worst sort of derogatory comments and innuendo. I’m about a third of the way through the galleys of Jonah’s book, which makes all of the shadowboxing of the Amazonians all the more astonishing: having not seen the actual contents of the book themselves, it’s fascinating how they’re driving themselves insane over merely a title, a subhead, and a book cover. It will be interesting to see how the dialogue changes once the book starts getting into the hands of readers, and its ideas start being discussed in the Blogosphere and beyond.
