Since the 1960s, McLuhan famously avoided taking what he called a 'moralistic' stance on the goodness or badness of electric media. But close readers of his major writings are in for a surprise. What emerges is distinctively conservative: tribalistic, stringently moralistic and opposed to the liberal, modernist, individualist age of modernity. This week, The Philosopher's Zone investigates McLuhan the right-wing moralist.

Incl. an actual discussion of traditional right vs neo-conservatism! Wow.
