Today, the greatest threats to conservative interests come . . . from too much individual freedom. Look around you: Americans have been poor stewards of our economic liberty, owing to cultural values that celebrate unfettered materialism. Our families and communities have fragmented, in part because we have embraced an ethic of extreme individualism. Climate change and a peak in oil production threaten our future because we have been irresponsible caretakers of the natural world and its resources.
What do you mean, “we,” Kemosabe? I don’t “celebrate unfettered materialism,” I just don’t want government in charge of the fetters. My family is not fragmented. And as to “climate change,” perhaps Dreher can refer me to the passage of Deuteronomy that establishes the high priesthood of climatologists.
