Just FYI, Tim Noah has the best mockery of Jonah Goldberg's subtitle switch available on the internet ("the totalitarian temptation" now runs "from Hegel to Whole Foods" instead of "from Mussolini to Hillary Clinton"). Talk of liberal fascism always puts me in the mind of this piece from National Review which observed that "Meyer contributed to an unfortunate tendency among conservatives toward theoretical maximalism, as in his casual reference to 'the totalitarian implications of the federal school lunch program.'" Just to show that, yes, Goldberg really is worse than some of his colleagues.
