"Reaganism was about Ideas"

The News: Saith David Brooks, " Yeah. I don't have anything against her, from everything I know she's a wonderful woman. But the conservative movement was built on a certain set of identity for itself: That ideas have consequences, that arguments really matter, that you win the war of ideas, that you form these organizations like the Federalist Society, this conservative legal organization, and that you win the war of ideas and that Reaganism was about ideas, and that even Bush, the war on freedom was about ideas. (PBS)

The Note: Oh sure... why the Reagan Admin. was a just a Great Books seminar led by Mortimer J. Adler. Ah yes, another intelectudrool on the New York Times.
