Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Dr. Pat Lasches Out

Christopher Lasch’s proud, populist realism is a powerful and noble antidote to meritocratic and therapeutic elitism. In addition to Deneen’s fine essay, let me recommend chapter 5 of my POSTMODERNISM RIGHTLY UNDERSTOOD as an introduction to Lasch. From Lasch’s own work, you might begin with the last chapter of his THE REVOLT OF THE ELITES, which isn’t dated at all.

The Culture of Narcissism is a classic.

Very interesting...

Yes, wm, a classic. The first really intellectual book I read, probably a senior in high school...must have had a good deal to do with how I am today.
