the New Pantagruel: Hymns in the Whorehouse:

“More than anything else, the New Pantagruel was fashioned out of this tradition and has sustained an anti-liberal argument against not just the usual suspects of the left, but also against much of what has passed for conservatism in the late modern age. We agree with Alasdair MacIntyre and David Schindler that most of the political and cultural, and even religious arguments today are between liberals: conservative liberals, liberal liberals, and radical liberals. In the wake of such a thoroughgoing critique of liberalism, the complaint we have heard most often, and most loudly, is “if not this, then what?” We hope that the following entries from American Conservatism: An Encyclopedia on “Community,” “Agrarianism,” “Anarchism,” and “Localism” will provide at least a taste of the possibilities and alternatives available from within the rich tradition of authentically conservative thought. –Eds.”
