Will on Diggins on Reagan
George F. Will reads John Patrick Diggins on Reagan and tries to draw a lesson or two for conservatives, for many of whom "nostalgia for Ronald Reagan has become...a substitute for thinking."
If Diggins is right about Reagan (is he, Steve?), then, at the very least, RWR enabled GWB. And then also Reagans optimistic gloss on conservatism is ultimately unconservative, more Emersonian than anything else. On that subject, one should read Patrick Deneens magisterial Democratic Faith.
