Liberal Fascism

The guy who wrote:

When I see the worsening degeneracy in our politicians, our media, our educators, and our intelligentsia, I can’t help wondering if the day may yet come when the only thing that can save this country is a military coup.

Thinks that Jonah Goldberg's laughable new book Liberal Fascism, is right on the money:

Jonah Goldberg’s Liberal Fascism is too rich a book to be summarized in a newspaper column. Get a copy and start rethinking the received notions about who is on “the Left” and who is on “the Right.” It is a book for people who want to think, rather than repeat rhetoric.

And as proof of just how right Goldberg is, consider that:

Famed British novelist and prominent Fabian socialist H. G. Wells called for “Liberal Fascism,” saying “the world is sick of parliamentary politics.”

Hmmmm, sounds like Wells might have felt that politics was degenerating and a military coup was in order to set things aright... oh, wait. Nevermind.
