Frequent AmSpec contributor James Poulos has a great little post up over at Postmodern Conservative concerning the intellectual weight some are attempting to bestow upon “therapeutic politics,” or, rather, in Poulos’ estimation, politics “co-opting all, ‘valuing’ all, converting convictions into commitments, ‘deep’ commitments, even.” More:
It was against this fashion that Lincoln suggested that a house divided cannot stand. The basic logic of therapeutic politics is that a house divided into a million little pieces can not only stand but should celebrate — indeed, must, because any other more specific ‘valuation’ than universal-minimal celebration shows a destabilizing favoritism.
The rest lives here.
