Crafting a New Republic

Stirling Newberry offers some alarming analysis in his recent diary at DailyKos, and in a recent book, The Fourth Republic (here is Chapter 1), in which he suggests America is entering a new anti-Constitutional Republic of Karl Rove's design. Well, that over-simplifies it, and this stuff is not simple. It is reminiscent, though not in tone, of some of the ideas in David Korten's essay, "Renewing the American Experiment" long a mainstay of my sidebar.

Via Rob Salkowitz, who adds his own synopsis of the article.

A bit frightening. Vaguely along the lines of my assertion that American values ain't what they used to be.
