Tim Blair puts the boot into a bizarre forthcoming book by John Carroll on The Meaning of September 11. Carroll has always trod the fine line between essentially reactionary cultural criticism in the manner of Carlyle and complete nonsense. It seems that he’s finally tipped over the edge.
My only query is: Does this kind of thing need Fisking? I think it would be more effective to reprint it uninterrupted, perhaps with added emphasis on the more flagrantly crazy bits.
