was no “;categorical assertion,”; narc. Discussed in the LF review. @ :You’;re right that the argument is Burkean –; and appropriately so considering that Wilson, like his nemesis Jonah Goldberg, was a devotee of Burke. However, I would never make the attempt, following Burke, to perform a one-to-one transfer of issues and definitions from Britain ca. 1793 to America ca. 2010 (or 1912). That would be a very un-Burkean operation, in my estimation.
