Weyrich's Long-Term Plan

The next conservatism should look toward a world where, as Tolkien put it, there is less noise and more green. Our goal should be to make agrarian life, in all its dimensions, available to as many Americans as possible, both those who work family farms for their living and those who earn their incomes in other ways but want a tie to the countryside. In this respect, the next conservatism should be like an older conservatism we seem to have forgotten. Conservatives should become agrarians again.

Paul's not the first Conservative to bring it up, and it is certainly not suitable for a number of people. But it deserves consideration--there's no Mayfair Mall sex/drugs/rock'n'roll display located in Fennimore, WI.

Read the rest at Free Congress.
