The string of lies used by Vice President Dick Cheney to justify war against Iraq, signalled a putsch by a small group of neo-conservatives most of whom are followers of fascist philosopher Leo Strauss. Their policy is to transform the United States into a brutish, post-modern imitation of the Roman Empire.
The Nietzschean philosophy of Strauss and his disciple Allan Bloom spawned the neo-conservative lunatics who have seized control of U.S. policymaking. Documentation: Straussian Allan Bloom "interprets" Plato.
Straussians also dominate the Democratic Party top-down. They operate largely through the Democratic Leadership Council of Joe Lieberman and Al Gore, controlling the party apparatus through gangsters and gangsterism.

A critical examination of Attorney General John Ashcroft's peculiar brand of "Christianity" indicates that his push for extraordinary measures against American Muslims may involve much more than the simple "law and order" bias of a very conservative Republican.
