Okay, I admit it. The American Conservative is awesome.
I’ve had my issues with TAC over the years . . . . . . and likely would know of more if I still read it regularly (even if I do suspect the vitriol they fed on so eagerly during the aughties has gotten old for them by now), but when they give us articles like this, a well-reported review of Marilynne Robinson’s views about why she is “Christian, not Conservative,” and you find a pretty-solid comments section on it to boot, I’m very impressed. Keep it up, TAC, and more please from this Robert Long fellow.
I initially went to TAC today for the review of Joshua Mitchell’s Tocqueville in Arabia book , perhaps more on that soon . . .
