Well, here's as much as I need to know about the depth of thought
that went into this tome:
which presents Goldberg's excuses for his earlier remarkable claim
that it's unfair to pin the label of "Fascist" on... Benito Mussolini.
Having seen this, I have decided to remain wilfully and happily
ignorant of the book itself, so I won't respond further --- but
Google will turn up no shortage of liberals with a lot more to
say about it if you're curious.
