fragments of an attempted writing.
An exchange between Daniel Larison and Corey Robin about conservatism and reaction.

An interesting discussion.  Reading this helped to further clarify some of the inclinations behind my own abandonment of (would-be) idiosyncratic conservatisms and my return to the radical left.  

The Larison/Robin exchange will be of especial interest to folks who have a background or interest in anti-war conservatism, distributism, paleo-conservatism, front-porcherism, crunchyconism, red toryism, and the like, and who try to place these conservatisms vis-√†-vis other conservatisms and vis-√†-vis the left.   It's not that anything gets resolved here, only that the way each writer frames his position is of interest - perhaps a helpful drawing of lines if you will.
