I wonder how many of us have seen Butler Shaffer's article on "The Decline and Fall of Conservatism"? It's in today's Lew Rockwell page. Those who have read Heidegger will see Schaffer touching on many of that philosopher's later themes - especially the decline of "meditative thinking".
Schaffer references Karl Hess. For those who haven't read Hess, one of his best pieces can be found here.
