Not read the book. Occasionally look at the website. Most of my understanding comes from Goldberg's criticisms. My admittedly shallow impression is that crunchies (1) live in the city, (2) enjoy tasty and preferably "natural" food and (3) go to church. Uh, ok. Used to live in the city (don't anymore because I have a child who needs to play outside and go to a school that's rated better than "satisfactory"); have never considered eating dinner a "rite" and enjoy an occasional double cheeseburger; and go to church. Goldberg argues they are cons who have made a lifestyle choice, AND, by labeling themselves differently, denigrate "traditional" cons, and I think I agree.
