Thank You, Readers


The Western Confucian's modest income from Newstex Content Syndication has allowed me to purchase the above books, second hand, by the late Christopher Lasch, in whose Village of Pittsford I now happily find myself living. They will certainly be of invaluable help in my reentry and resettlement to a country from which I have been absent for a third of my life.

Congratulations, sir, on your new home and your new weblog. I see that you live not far from Her Britannic Majesty's Dominion of Canada, nor far from loyalist settlements in said dominion.

Last summer I read Eric Miller's new bio of Lasch, *Hope in a Scattering Time*. It's very good.

Best of luck reintegrating!

You might like to read Jean Twenge's book, "The Narcissism Epidemic," for a fascinating study into the culture of contemporary America. It thoughtfully examines a society in which dominant cultural mores state that we are "special", entitled, and need to feel good about ourselves at all times.
