Paul Edward Gottfried

Front Porch Republic offers a very useful introduction to the life and work of Dr Paul Edward Gottfried, one of the United States’ least known but most perceptive political writers, and trenchant critic of the Managerial State and of the fake-Left cult of the therapeutic society which is the technocracy’s more or less official civil religion. The essay points out how difficult it is to reduce Dr Gottfried to any recognized species of American “conservativism”, and readers will also note that Dr Gottfried, an observant Jew, professes a deep affinity with Reformation tradition.
