The 'Crunchy Con' label

I'm not one to wear a label (other than Christian) -- but this Crunchy Con idea has sparked my interest.

"The result of this materialism is “a society dedicated to the
multiplication of wants and the intensification of desire, not the improvement
of character.” What sets Dreher’s “crunchy cons” apart is the extent to which
they have recognized the corrosive effects of a culture that is both
materialistic and pornographic, and they are prepared to do something about
it.

My husband and I just read that Colson article. I thought it was funny that Colson thinks you're automatically looking like a liberal if you wear Berkenstocks and eat granola, or homeschool your kid.

Maybe it's 'cause we're from California but those things seemed awfully "normal" to us!
