Another one for American Theocracy

Here's a confluence I did not expect, David Brin, author of the excellent scifi novel, Startide Rising, talking about American Theocracy. His take is that American conservatism has been hijacked by

"A power-sharing arrangement between resource controlling aristocrats and mystical clerics, who chant justifications for aristocratic rule." Yikes!

He wants a grassroots oldline converatism to rebel. Based on what I read in the Right Nation about the strength of the grassroots social cons, I don't know how likely that is, but I wish him ALL the best.
