Crunchy Conservatives

The new book by Rod Dreher on counter-cultural conservatism is almost in bookstores, which means I'll have to see if it makes it into Canadian bookstore shelves. National Review has launched an extremely interesting blog to discuss the book, and has invited luminaries such as Amy Welborn, Frederica Mathews-Green and Caleb Stegall of tNP to discuss the book.

George Nash has ably described the book in an excellent review:
It is a rousing altar call to spiritual secession from an America that Mr. Dreher sees as awash in materialism, consumerism and "lifestyle-libertarian" thinking.
Am I a crunchy con? Possibly, but I think I may have to start eating more granola.
