A Progressive Response To Tea Party Contract From America | NEWS JUNKIE POST
There are elements of this "conservative" phenomenon at work in the Australian context.
Essentially it a reaction to their own failure. A disjunctive and common element being blame. Its always some "evil empire" that breaks the Torie Utopia.
There are others :
they feel they are the natural rulers of the rest of we great unwashed.
government is a self defeating argument.
anything not us is enemy.
propaganda is the first tool of choice.
righteous indignation replaces rational thought.
an underlying belief that the planet and the other really exist to be exploited for the use of "not other".
they always have some actual superstitious argument to validate this and some conscious salving commitment of others of the "not others" to service for these poor unfortunates who really are not intelligent enough to function in their Roman Civilisation.
