thursday's child is sunday's clown:
The new subtitle is The Totalitarian Temptation from Hegel to Whole Foods. Someone named Brad Plummer has done a good job inquiring about the connection between Whole Foods and the jackboot of the state. But perhaps the focus on Whole Foods obscures the deeper, burning question: what does Jonah Goldberg know about Hegel? Will we get a run-through of Marx's debt to Hegel, and totalitarianism's debt to Marx? It's possible, but that would hardly be a very serious thoughtful argument that has never been made in such detail or with such care.
