Lu thinks the time may be ripe:
As young liberals sour on what is to them the old world of the political and cultural Left, conservative ideas might have a real allure. For younger generations, tradition often has the benefit of feeling simultaneously time-tested and novel. We might generate considerable momentum by daring young radicals to embrace conservatism, a truly countercultural move that promises to drive their teachers (and parents?) crazy.
If she wants any advice, I can certainly offer some.
Ed Driscoll adds:
But why do I need to “get ready for the Neo-Neocons,” when I’ve known the original Neo-Neocon for over a decade?
Thanks, Ed! In all seriousness, it’s not the first time that other people have used the “neo-neocon” phrase. But yes, I was the first to use it (at least, I think I was).
And I’m not so “neo” anymore, am I? But, like a person nicknamed “junior” in his youth and still called “junior” when he’s an old graybeard, I guess I’m stuck with it.
I’ve thought of changing it, but to what? Any suggestions?
Not that I’ll necessarily take them.
