(2) Political Ideology and Philosophy of Neo-Conservatism
Page 5, Chapter 1, 1(2) INDIA & CRUSADES FOR DEMOCRACY: One. Just as no Prophet can reveal a new world religion, without bringing god into that religion, similarly no American crusades for democracy would succeed unless India, the world’s largest democracy is in the crusades for democracy. By purging the Neo-Conservative philosophy of its Jewish iconoclast patriarchal particularity, the philosophy of “Democratic Capitalist Neo-Conservatism” poised to reign as the dominant political ideology of the Second Millennium in general and the 21st Century in particular. Just as a rough diamond shines when polished by skilled diamond cutter and polisher, the neo-conservatism agenda in general and crusades for democracy, suddenly exposed its internal brilliance when nurtured by black woman Secretary Condoleeza Rice and President Bush, who made a paradigm shift in American foreign policy by replacing pro-China and anti-democracy Kissinger-style policies of earlier administrations, by pro-India and pro-democracy policies of second Bush administration, which many believe is the un-first administration. Neo-Conservative Manifesto seeks to outline the march of history and crusades for democracy in the 21st Century under the banner of Neo-Conservatism led world’s largest democracy India and world’s oldest and richest democracy the United States.
(2) NEOCONS PURGED ICONOCLAST PATRIARCHY:
Two. The universal principles of American Neo-Conservatism, revealed when purged of its Judeo particularity and iconoclast patriarchy, at the hands of black woman Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and religious Protestant President Bush, enriched the world with its perfume so much that the Sikh Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Muslim President Abdul Kalam agreed to hitch the wagon of India to the rising ideology of Neo-Conservatism by signing civilian nuclear deal, to safeguard energy security of India as well as of the United States and to make a common front against Apocalyptic teleology of barbarian global terrorism and religious fundamentalism and to jointly undertake crusades for democracy worldwide and nation building in the Second World, Third World including the oil-producing Middle East. By purging Neo-Conservatism of the iconoclast patriarchy that Secretary Henry Kissinger inflicted on the world, and by choosing India to join the American crusades for democracy worldwide, has unshackled the Judeo-chained that had earlier tied Neo-Conservatism to local agenda, so that American could lead global crusades for democracy and wars on global terrorism and religious fundamentalism. With India on its side, the United States is ready to direct and lead the world history and judiciously manage its unique position as the sole superpower or hegemon of the world. India and America should aim to establish 100 Democratic Neo-Conservative Parties in the world, nurture and support new democratic leaders in these countries, and help these Neo-Conservative political parties acquire power in their countries so that these new neo-conservative nations could attain an era of peace and prosperity under the protective US-India neo-conservative umbrella.
(3) NEO-CONS’ REIGNING PHILOSOPHY:
Three. Why should one give a concise definition to Neo-Conservatism, a new emerging philosophy as ideas undergo constant change in a fast changing world, so that only fools claim that their religion or ideology or philosophy is in final unalterable final form and final stage of evolution? Every world philosophy is a hall of mirrors, as every new idea gets reflected in the ideas that preceded it and changes the images that we see in the hall of mirrors on a continuous basis. Only a shit-philosopher would say that his exposition of ideas is the final exposition of truth for all times to come. But it might be that the inability to define Neo-Conservatism in its finished format is part of what constitutes its power. In a sense the mystification of the irrational, as the rational takes away the power of a rational critique, while at the same proposing itself as pre-eminently rational. Neo-Conservatism is the reigning ideology of 21st Century and like Protestantism or Hinduism believes that every morally “right” philosophy, ideology or belief must undergo constant change and transformation to remain relevant in newly emerging future. Any philosophy that refuses to change to adjust to new realities putrefies and stinks like shit Marxism, Communism, Leninism, Stalinism or Maoism.
(4) IDEOLOGICAL RIGOR OF NEOCONS:
Four. The subject of Neo-Conservatism is a label that suggests an ideological rigor that neocons have never demonstrated nor perhaps even sought. From the outset, the Neo-Conservative identification with the post-Vietnam Right was a marriage of convenience rather than a union of kindred spirits. Though the label neocon has increasingly become one of opprobrium, the heat generated by the term “Neo-Conservatism” also stands as a backhanded tribute, an acknowledgement that the Neo-Conservative impact has been substantial, as indeed it has – to the fortune of us all in the democratic world. During last decade, especially since the ascendancy of George W. Bush to the presidency, "Neo-Conservative" has become a term of opprobrium, frequently accompanied by ad hominem attacks and charges of arrogance and hubris. It is today too soon to offer a comprehensive assessment of that impact. One aspect of the Neo-Conservative legacy has been to foster the intellectual climate necessary for the emergence of the new American militarism. As a practical matter, the task of reinventing Neo-Conservatism for a post-Communist world as well as the task of spelling out an "imperial self-definition" of American purpose fell to a new generation and new allies from democratic India. To promote that effort, leading members of that new generation of neo-conservatives should create their own institutions, to efficiently mobilize the resources of India and the United States for undertaking Crusades for Democracy. What India refused to do in 1950, India is willing to do in 2006 that is to provide India’s full moral, political and military support to establish Democratic Pax-Americana worldwide.
(5) NEO-CONS POSTMODERN CONSERVATISM:
Five. Neo-Conservatism has gotten to the point where one would have been happy identifying it as a type of ‘Postmodern Conservatism,’ as an escape route to explain that one can’t tell you what Neo-Conservatism is but one can tell you what Neo-Conservatism is not.” To recognize Trotsky/Hook elements in Neo-Conservatism would display one’s radical Libertarianism. To ignore Neo-Conservatism’s Trotsky/Hook aspects would prove “The State” was seducing one. To identify the hermeneutics of the Neo-Conservative and its Straussian "slow readings" would only imply one was reading too much into it. If there is one thing that is becoming clear, after the intellectual dust settles, it is this: these comrades, the frontrunners on the Republican Neo-Conservative highways are still Republican social democrats. Earlier calling a Republican a “social democrat” used to be a grave insult. Like most social democrats there is a Hegelian brush coloring Neo-Conservatism “persuasion” or ideology
(6) NEOCONS REJECT STATISM:
Six. Neo-Conservatives do not feel that kind of alarm or anxiety about the growth of the state in the 20th century, seeing growth of the State as natural, indeed inevitable. Neo-Conservatives tend to be more interested in history than economics or sociology. Neo-Conservatives condemn as a historical eccentricity the 19th-century idea of Statism propounded by Herbert Spencer in his "The Man Versus the State." Neocons are familiar with intellectual history and aware that it is only in 19th and 20th centuries that democracy became a respectable idea among political thinkers. Trotsky viewed democracy as an inherently turbulent political regime, with the "have-nots" and the "haves" engaged in a perpetual and utterly destructive class struggle. For Hook, Democracy was only the prospect of economic growth in which everyone prospered, if not equally or simultaneously, that gave modern democracies their legitimacy and durability. Neo-Conservatives are impatient with the Hayekian notion that we are on "the road to serfdom."
(7) IDEOLOGY OF POLYTHEIST IDEALISM:
Seven. Neo-Conservatism is not an ideology of iconoclast monotheism but an ideology of polytheist Idealism that has regenerated the post-Renaissance world since the dawn of modernity, and that is the Oriental ideal that men can be like gods by Yoga. Such revolutionary ideal is bound to succeed, sooner or later, and with the accelerated pace of events speeding up before our eyes, world is resigned to the fact that it will be sooner, because neither any single power nor the coalition of murderous ideologies and terrorist powers, can stand against the Allied forces of polytheist multi-ethnic Protestant America and Hindu India. Neo-Conservatism believes that America is an empire now and when America acts, America creates its own reality. And while realists are studying that reality, judiciously if they can, Neo-Con America will act again, creating other new set of international realities, which realists can study too, and that's how things will sort out. Neo-Con America is history's actors or agency of History, and amoral iconoclast patriarchal realists, all of them, will be left to just study what Neo-Con America as agency of History does. Neo-Cons believe that Kissinger-type realists and Roosevelltian realists live in a reality-based community, and these realists believe that solutions emerge from their judicious study of discernible reality, what they call enlightened iconoclast patriarchal principles and empiricism. Neo-Cons believe that is not the way the world really works anymore. Neo-Conservatism provides an inside look into the heart of Bush presidency, more than anything else. Neo-Conservatism as the Ideology is the reason first Bush administration was in Afghanistan and Iraq and shall be in Syria, Iran, or Sudan in the second administration.
(8) FRESH IDEOLOGY FOR 21ST CENTURY:
Eight. Neo- is a prefix that derives from the Greek adjective ‘veos’ that means "new" or "fresh" and in theory Republican ‘Neo-Conservatism’ is used inexactly for those Conservatives who once were not, or for those who have reinterpreted American Conservatism in terms of a more idealistic American foreign policy that eschewed both Cold War Real-Politik and the hallowed traditions of American Republican isolationism. But the accepted definition of Republican Neo-Conservatism has given way in practice to refer to the more particular proponents of the use of military action to remove threatening governments, and to replace them with democratic systems, hence the occasional sobriquets of "Neo-Wilsonian."
(9) NEO-CONSERVATISM A WORLD PHILOSOPHY:
Nine. What is an Israeli Neo-Conservatism? The pro-Israel officials in the State Department do not enjoy the kind of dominance they enjoy in the Department of Defense of the White House, so any fear that Secretary Rice might be misled by any pro-Israel official is totally misplaced. The dual loyalty of officials of Bush officials towards Israel does not present any threat to American national interests, on the contrary the Neo-Conservative ideal of American Empire may find ready acceptance by American public, if it is reluctantly accomplished as if under the influence of pro-Israel lobby. Neo-Conservatism emerged as a force in America in the 1980s. The father of Neo-Conservatism was a Jewish philosopher named Leo Strauss (1899-1973), who immigrated to America from Germany in 1938. It is significant that most of the well-known, modern-day followers of Strauss are also Jewish. Strauss himself once publicly admitted that his ideology of neo-conservatism was around the Jews. If described in political terms only, Neo-Conservatism is a moderate movement. However, Neo-Conservatism, despite its name, is not a political movement per se, but is instead a racial, i.e., Jewish, movement. Granted, a few non-Jews advocate Neo-Conservative ideas as well. The Neo-Conservatism is a proactive, not a reactive, movement. Jews conceptualized the philosophy of neo-Conservatism and due to the Jewish efforts the ideology of Neo-Conservatism emerged as the dominant political ideology of the 21st Century.
(10) CHRISTIAN VS ISLAM APOCALYPSE:
Ten. The Armageddon that Judeo-Christians religious right or Prophetic Christians actively promote has found willing allies amongst Israeli loyalists inside the administration that have tactically allied themselves with Prophetic Christians raises the horrifying but very real prospect of an apocalyptic Christian-Islamic war. Arch-conservative Pope John Paul II believed in Armageddon, Apocalyptic eschatology and Fatima Prophecy, which declares that Jesus will return and the Holy Land of the Middle East will become Christian lands again, as was the case before Arab Muslim invaders financed by Damascus Jews invaded and conquered Christian lands of Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Libya and Algeria. The Prophetic Christians implicitly believe that Christianity shall replace Islam in the Middle East. More than 30 percent Americans believe in the End of time eschatology doctrines, Apocalypse and Armageddon. The neo-cons seem unconcerned, and Bush's occasional pro forma remonstrations against blaming all Islam for the sins of Islamic extremists do nothing to make this prospect less likely. WASP-led Petro-colonial American Empire presents the only military solution to avoid the Pope-led Apocalypse or Armageddon in the oil-rich Islamic Middle East. Only the Protestant colonial oil empire in the Middle East would avert the Armageddon of Catholic fundamentalism against Wahhabi Sunni fundamentalism. If the Christian Scriptures are true then Islamic Middle East shall become Christian lands after the Second Coming of the Jesus Christ, means that Islam as a religion would die in the Middle East. To avert the imminent Catholic-Sunni Armageddon, the Protestant American must use preemptive force to establish Middle East wide Oil-Colonialism. American Petro-Imperialism alone can prevent imminent Apocalypse and Armageddon.
(11) BUSH & RICE REJECTS APOCALYPSE:
Eleven. The separate strains of Jewish, Catholic and Protestant Christian fundamentalism have dovetailed into an Petro-Imperialistic American agenda for a vast imperial project to restructure the Middle East, all further reinforced by the happy coincidence of great oil resources up for grabs and a president and vice president heavily invested in oil. Neither President Bush nor Secretary Condoleezza Rice belongs to the Christian religious right conspiracy, even when Bush administration frequently enters into tactical political ties with the vested interests of Jewish and Christian fundamentalists. All of these factors (i) the dual loyalties of an extensive network of policymakers allied with Israel, (ii) the influence of a fanatical wing of Catholic and Protestant Christian fundamentalists, and (iii) influence of Big-Oil funded Petro-Imperialism of Pax-Americana probably factor in more or less equally to the Bush administration's calculations on Iraq, Iran, Sudan, war on terror, and crusades for democracy in the Middle East.
(12) NEO-CONSERVATISM IS ANTI-COMMUNISM:
Twelve. Many of the Republican Neo-Conservatives former Trotskyites who have morphed into a new, closely related life form, which makes anti-Communism and anti-China the article of faith for Neo-Conservatism. Many early neocons, including Irving Kristol, Nathan Glazer, Sidney Hook, and Albert Wohlstetter belonged to the anti-Stalinist far left in the late 1930s and early 1940s, and their successors, including Joshua Muravchik and Carl Gershman came to Neo-Conservatism through the Socialist Party at a time when it was Trotskyite in outlook and politics. As early as 1963 there was a continuous progression of many ex-Communists from the paranoid left to the paranoid right, clinging all the while to the fundamentally Manichean psychology that underlies both. Four decades later in the Bush administration, the dominant strain of Neo-Conservatism is declared to be a mixture of geopolitical militarism and "inverted socialist internationalism." So long as Jews controlled the Neo-Conservatism, the Neo-Conservatives may have been redesigned Trotskyites, though this view needs to be corrected in favor of a more nuanced analysis. Some form of gradual but irreversible and desirable withering away of the state is a key tenet of the Trotskyite theoretical outlook. The Neo-Conservatives, by contrast are statists par excellence. Most followers of the Trotskyite Left are internationalists and one-world globalists, whereas all Neo-Conservatives are unabashed imperialists.
(13) NEOCONS’ CALL OF HISTORY:
Thirteen. “The call of history has come to the right country, we exercise power without conquest, and sacrifice for the liberty of strangers, we know that freedom is the right of every person and the future of every nation: "The liberty we prize is not America's gift to the world, it is God's gift to humanity," declared President Bush in 2005 State of the Union address. Republican Neo-Conservatism is committed to fulfill the Messianic destiny of its ideology, which emerged as the dominant philosophy and ideology of the 21st Century. Neo-Conservatism believes in a psychotic quest for power and dominance is the driving force, and the "nationalist" discourse its justification.
(14) NEOCONS NATIONAL GREATNESS:
Fourteen. Driven by the same impulse, Neo-Conservatives’ "national greatness" psychosis seeks to sweep away the old localized, decentralized America of bingo parlors and little league games, and channels the great energy of the American people to realize America’s Manifest Destiny in 21st Century to export democracy, democratic institutions, open and inclusive culture and the civilization worldwide, so that the evil of theocracy, religious fundamentalism, totalitarian communism is eradicated from the face of the world. The Neo-Conservative urge for uninhibited physical control of oil-reserves may resemble Hitler-led New European Order of 1940s, or to the Stalin-led "Socialist Community" that succeeded it in Eastern Europe.
(15) NEOCON UTOPIAN MINDSET:
Fifteen. Neo-Conservative mind-set is Utopian. Neo-Conservative mind-set is neither eschatological nor teleological nor apocalyptic. On the contrary Neo-conservatism believes that the future world will have more prosperity than the present world, especially after the worldwide export of America-type democracy, capitalism, institutions and freedom. Neo-Conservatism advocates prudent use of force to export American-type democracy, liberty, freedom, culture, and civilization world wide, including the Middle East and Non-Aligned Third World. If Hitler’s Germany, Hirohito’s Japan, Mussolini’s Italy and Stalin’s Soviet Union could be replaced by democratic political systems in Germany, Japan, Italy and Russia respectively, there is no reason to doubt that Iran, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait or China can also become democratic nations that grants democratic elections, religious freedoms, liberty for all their men and women. The Republican Neo-Conservative mindset is not apocalyptic, which is a Nazi and Stalinist trait, but utopian, which characterizes the Trotskyite Left. President Bush replaced the Soviet Communist threat of the Cold War with the more amorphous global Islamic "terrorism" does not reflect a doomsday revolutionary mentality that can never rest, because America has the military capability to enforce by use of arms democratic regime changes, and modernization of Islamic societies in the oil-producing Islamic world. New missions of Neo-Conservatives are: the propagation of democracy, democratic institution building and imposition of American system of liberty and freedom in the Middle East and the third world. Neo-Conservatism advocates new wars to wage crusades for democracy to engineer democratic nation building and to defeat Islamic terrorism. Neo-Cons need not manufacture any pretexts for preemptive attacks, as world accepted these measures because of 9/11 attacks on America.
(16) MORALITY CAN’T BIND NEOCON HEGEMON:
Sixteen. In the Neo-Conservative mindset, the great nations those who are fit to change history and take the history forward are those who realize there is no international morality that limits the exercise of military and political power that the sole super power or hegemon of the world may exercise, so long it is used for securing morally “right” or morally “good” objectives, such as crusades for democracy, nation building to export India-USA-type democracy, institutions, freedom, liberty and capitalism. In a unipolar world order there is no international morality that limits the judicious exercise of power by sole super power and that there is only one natural right, the right of the superior world powers to rule over the inferior powers to modify and create a new world based on the reigning ideology of the reigning hegemon of the world. This Neo-Con mindset is America's greatest friend and greatest strength. Neo-Conservative mindset legitimizes the preemptive attacks by the reigning hegemon for exporting America-type democracy, institutions, freedom and liberty; is the greatest protection of the international constitutional order, identity, and way of life of the civilized world in existence today, and protects the world civilizations from the unprovoked invasions of barbarians, terrorists, extremists and fundamentalists.
(17) EXOTERIC OR ESOTERIC NEO-CONSERVATISM:
Seventeen. One of the chief characteristics of a classic Messianic political ideology is that there are two sets of ideological ideals that hold the political idealists in thrall, Exoteric Neo-Con ideals and Esoteric Neo-Con ideals, are two entirely separate and often contradictory ideologies that are held simultaneously by followers of Neo-Conservatism. Every world ideology has two sets of differing and distinctive creeds: the exoteric ideals and the esoteric ideals. The Neo-Cons exoteric creed is the official, public doctrine, the creed that attracts the acolyte in the first place and brings him into the neocon movement as a rank-and-file member and a voter for neocon candidates in democratic elections. The esoteric Neo-Con ideology is a quite different creed and represents the unknown, hidden agenda, esoteric creed that is only known to its full extent by the top leadership, the 'high priests' of the Messianic ideology. The leaders of the Esoteric Neo-con ideology are the keepers of the Mysteries of the Messianic democratic ideology.
(18) EXOTERIC NEO-CONSERVATISM:
Eighteen. The Exoteric Neo-Conservative agenda is to promote Petro-Americana and crusades for democracies worldwide. The Esoteric Neo-Conservative agenda is to establish Capitalist Democratic Utopia in the oil-rich Islamic Middle East, so that the Christian-Islamic Armageddon results in the demise of Wahhabi Islamic religious fundamentalism as well as that of Papal extremism and fundamentalism. Neither President Bush nor Secretary rice belong to Christian religious right conspiracy, while President Ford, President Carter, President Clinton, Secretary Kissinger, Secretary Brzezinski and Secretary Albright openly declared their allegiance to Christian religious right conspiracy and they all misused their constitutional position to implement their hidden iconoclastic patriarchal anti-paganism agenda.
(19) ESOTERIC NEO-CONSERVATISM:
Nineteen. Messianic political ideologies become particularly fascinating when the esoteric and exoteric creeds are not only different, but totally and glaringly in mutual contradiction. This fundamental contradiction plays havoc in the minds and lives of the voters and adversaries. The Judeo-Marxist-Leninist-Maoist-Communist ideologies are, officially, champions of Science, and fanatically atheistic, and yet impart a quasi-mystical infallibility to "the party" that has about it a distinctly religious air. Judeo-Marxist Communist has a hidden iconoclast, patriarchal, anti-Hinduism, anti-Buddhism and anti-polytheism agenda that lends credibility to the argument that Karl Marx was a prostitute-philosopher hired by Papacy to destroy Slav Orthodox Christianity and Buddhism. It is no accident that all Bolshevik Jews that proclaimed their atheism and secularity apparently knew torah well and joined the Orthodox Judaism whenever they landed in any Western countries as refugees from the godless Soviet Union.
(20) ESOTERIC NEOCONS REJECTS ARMAGEDDON:
Twenty. The Esoteric Neo-Conservatism does not believe in Armageddon or Christian-Islamic apocalyptic wars, even when Exoteric Neo-conservatism courts and cultivate Christian religious right conservatives and even advocate government funding for Church-led charitable initiatives. President Bush entered into a tactical alliance with Christian extremism and fundamentalism even when he does not belong to Christian religious right conspiracy. The esoteric Neo-Conservatism or inner doctrine of Neo-Conservatism is in many ways the exact opposite of the official creed. While "liberty" and "freedom" are the bywords of the Neo-Conservatism, esoteric Neo-conservatism believes in the rule by an elite. The ignorant masses are kept in thrall by various delusions, such as Prophetic Christians, believers of apocalyptic Armageddon that keeps American Christian society together and that it is the duty of the neo-conservative philosophers to uphold, since more than 30 percent American Christians believe in Scriptures, Armageddon or Apocalypse. While Exoteric neo-Conservatism entered into tactical electoral alliance with Papal extremism and Catholic fundamentalism and Protestant Evangelical extremism, the “Esoteric Neo-Conservatism rejects alliance with Christian extremism as the real motive of the Neo-conservatism is to create as secular capitalist American oil colonialism or the Petro-imperialism. Neither President Bush, nor Secretary Rice would allow the misuse of American hegemony for establishing any variant of Papal Holy Empire.
(21) EXOTERIC NEOCONS & SCRIPTURES:
Twenty-one. The exoteric guff about "democracy" was for the benefit of a Western audience, while, on the ground in Iraq, the administration had hidden agenda of a civil war, the multiple partitioning of Iraq, Iran and Saudi Arabia, Shiite-Sunni civil wars and Iran-Saudi Arabia wars, regional religious conflict that will tear apart the Wahhabi Muslim world asunder and install secular liberal democratic governments throughout the Islamic world.
(22) EXOTERIC GEOPOLITICAL GOALS:
Twenty-two. The exoteric goals, namely, the liberation of Iraq, the elections, and all the accompanying rhetoric about "self-determination," were only a cover for the real, esoteric objectives: a cynical geopolitical manipulation that can only lead to perpetual war in the Middle East and the pulverization of the existing Arab and Muslim states, all of it lorded over by a rising American Empire. The Esoteric Neo-Conservative agenda may include the abolition of Papacy, the democratizing the Vatican and Papacy. The Esoteric Neo-Conservative agenda may include the multiple partitioning of Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Iran, along ethnic boundaries and Shiite-Sunni conflicts. The Esoteric Neo-Conservative agenda may include crusades for democracy in Communist China and regime change in China to install a democratic capitalist Buddhist government in China. The Esoteric Neo-Conservative agenda may include the liberation of Arab Muslim women by imposing Western freedom and liberty and democratic institutions throughout the Arab world. The esoteric Neo-Con agenda may include expulsion of Wahhabi extremists and terrorists from Mecca and Medina and to declare Holy cities of Mecca and Medina as sovereign International cities governed by elected leaders of the Muslim believers of the world. The illusory hardliner face of exoteric Neo-Conservatism becomes morally good when viewed from the hidden esoteric Neo-Conservative agenda. Relatively speaking the hidden esoteric agenda of Neo-Conservatism is morally “right” and “good” when compared with declared exoteric Neo-Conservative agenda.
(23) MARCH OF DEMOCRATIC UTOPIA:
Twenty-three. The ideology of Neo-Conservatism believes in the inevitable march of “Democratic Utopia” based on America as the Exemplar Democratic State, which could determine the curse of history in the 21st Century if judiciously backed by military power of the American hegemon. Russia is no longer socialist at all, but represented a new kind of society called bureaucratic collectivism. China has adopted capitalism in foreign trade zones. The threat represented by the Rise of China to the United States, European Union and India cannot be overestimated. Communist China is mutant Communist-Capitalist monster of enormous strength that would soon overcome the United States, unless the "Third Camp," represented by global alliance of capitalist democracies led by the United States and India somehow prevailed. The Trotskyits had a huge influence on the so-called "New York intellectuals" and Social Democrats, who eventually evolved into Republican Neo-Conservatives, and its intellectual legacy lives on in the form of the fascination with capital-D Democracy that is the chief ideological capstone of the Neo-Conservative foreign policy revolution. Neo-Conservatives worship the abstract Democracy. The "Third Camp" finally came to the conclusion that, in a war, one must choose sides, and they chose the democratic capitalist United States as the embodiment of Democracy and the American military Democratic Utopia’s righteous instrument.
(24) NEOCON IDEOLOGY & CULTURE:
Twenty-four. Neo-Conservatives stress the centrality of ideology and culture, as ideology and culture are two sides of the same coin that determines the course that American society shall ultimately follow. Neo-Conservatives believe it is this New Left critique of the United States that is more nefarious and that demands pointed opposition. All Neo-Conservative writing is inspired by this perceived need to protect American culture and the forces that support it. Neo-Conservatives believe that politics is about morality, and that morality should infuse political behavior and that Religion is the source of the moral virtues that animate both individuals and the society in which they live. Because of the constitutional separation of the State and the Church, the practice of religion within public institutions has become illegal on the grounds of separation of church and state. Neo-Conservatives, Jewish and Christian alike, respond that this is too broad a reading of the concept. They note that the Constitution prohibits the establishment of an official state religion but does not say that religion has no place as a motivating force in politics.
(25) NEOCONS AS ANTI-PRO-COMMUNISM LEFT:
Twenty-five. Neo-Conservatism came into it’s own during the 1960s and 1970s and became a political force that would oppose the pro-Communism Left far more than the anti-Communism Right. For Neo-Conservatism the cultural sphere was very important as it is a sphere from which economics and politics draws its’ meaning. For Neo-Conservatism, a battle over the definition of American culture is one that Neo-Conservatives view as the battle for the American soul. Neo-Conservatism rejected the post-1960 Democratic New Left agenda that opposed the use of American military power overseas on the grounds that the United States lacked the moral legitimacy to act as a global force. Neo-Conservatives joined the New Left in opposing the Vietnam War, but on the narrower grounds that the war, as defined by the Pentagon, was not winnable, and that the overall strategic interest of the United States in Southeast Asia was questionable. Neo-Conservatives also supported the civil rights movement, in that it offered the potential for African Americans to join the American mainstream in the same way that their own grandparents did. Neo-Conservatives, sympathetic to individual achievement without regard to membership in a social or racial group, opposed affirmative action for both ideological and Jewish self-interest reasons. Neo-Cons believed that the true path to success in the United States was the one taken by Jewish families. Neo-Cons were resentful that the discrimination faced by immigrant Jewish families was repeated, this time as reverse discrimination, by Democratic polity of affirmation action that helped Blacks, women, minorities and immigrants.
(26) MORALITY IN CAPITALISM:
Twenty-six. Neo-Conservatism seeks to introduce morality in Capitalism, which may be termed “Moral Capitalism” to blunt the ruthlessness of Capitalist economy. Neo-Conservatives have displayed a religious fervor in their defense of capitalism. Religion and capitalism together create what Neo-Conservatives view as the ideal social order. While paleo-conservatives praise capitalism for promoting economic growth and personal freedom, Neo-Conservatives view the market as an ideal mechanism of moral restraint. Libertarian arguments for capitalism point out that the market efficiently translates individual demand into social outcomes. Neo-Conservatives respond that capitalism, having no values of its own, requires some form of morality to maintain its humanity, a morality support structure found in religion. Neo-Conservatism argues with the infusion of religious morality, influences the consumer demand. Neo-Conservative suggest that all participants in the capitalist economy, if economy is to thrive, must acknowledge the need of religious morality in the economy. While economics cannot pollute culture, a corrupt culture can be propagated by ruthlessly efficient capitalist market. Neo-Conservatives fret over issues of selfishness and greed less than they fret over moral failures of capitalism that religion, not socialism or government regulation of the market will cure. The Neo-Conservative theologians put forward a novel moral defense of capitalism that apparently influenced even Pope John Paul II. Keeping in mind that the support that Neo-Conservatives offer to capitalism is more for moral than economic reasons raises fear that amoral capitalism may undermine the Judeo-Christian ethic, just as it had sustained it in the past. For this reason, capitalism deserves only two cheers instead of the traditional three. It supports the production of material wealth, and it is the most efficient of economic systems, but it also has the potential to undermine religion and morality by doing nothing to combat a nihilistic ethic of self-indulgence and greed. While Neo-Conservatives are pro-capitalism, they are anything but libertarians.
(27) DEMOCRACY & FREEDOM NOT AN END:
Twenty-seven. Neo-Conservatives view that neither democracy as well as freedom is an end in itself nor is a good in itself. In Neo-Conservatism freedom and democracy are acceptable only to the extent that they are consistent with the Conservative virtues. While Neo-Conservatism opposes totalitarian regimes on the grounds that they impose an all-encompassing ideology upon society, the Neo-conservative virtues seem to take on the same kind of global role for the crusades of democracy. While castigating pro-China Democratic New Left intellectuals for lacking touch with common American people, Neo-Conservative intellectuals complain that the United States is too democratic in the propagation of its ideology, that allows foreign nations to reject the wise advice that Neo-Conservative America offers them. Neo-Conservatives believe that freedom is inherently subject to abuse and liberty may degenerate into license, in the terminology of John Locke. Neo-Conservatives dwell upon the consequences of ideas, arguing that intellectual debates dictate the shape of society decades down the road. Neo-Conservatism encourages inventive intellectual suggestions as vital to the vibrant capitalist democratic political system, and democratic give and take of politics, and the inherent democratic need to compromise, smoothens the most unrealistic edges of intellectuals' prescriptions.
(28) PRO-RELIGIONS NEO-CONSERVATISM:
Twenty-eight. Religion played an important role in the formation of Neo-Conservative thought. However, Neo-Conservatives do not subscribe to Catholic and Evangelical religious right conspiracy. Neo-Conservatism is a unique alliance of Jewish and Catholic Christian intellectuals making a common defense of the Judeo-Christian ethic. Neo-Conservatism started as a Jewish movement that only begrudgingly tolerated a Catholic presence in Neo-Conservatism. Jewish Neo-Conservatives welcomed Catholic Christian allies when politically useful, such as Jews’ courting of the Christian Right, but on other occasions Jewish Neo-Conservatives depicts Catholic Neo-Conservatives as a threat to Judaism in the United States, such as Jews heated opposition to religious intermarriage.
(29) REJECTS LOCKE & ENLIGHTENMENT:
Twenty-nine. Neo-Conservatism separates a liberal political tradition of Locke and the Enlightenment from its embedding in the historical evolution of democratic institutions. The Locke’s ideology is then battered and destroyed by means of Enlightenment. Neo-Conservative concept of the state remains democratic in its formal aspect as a legalistic republic, there is an imposed interest in state enforcement of theoretically dominant cultural values and religious traditions. This separation of a liberal tradition from concepts of democracy opens Neo-Conservative doctrine of State to the Christian fundamentalists, giving the flavor of a theocratic state. And it allows for a thorough going Neocon attacks on any form of counter-cultural expression. To Neocons there are only friends and enemies.
(30) SEPARATES NATIONALISM & PATRIOTISM:
Thirty. Neo-Conservatives also create a separation between nationalism and patriotism. Patriotism means public displays of support, adulation, and expressions of loyalty toward various political figures. Neo-conservatism opposes nationalism in the abstract sense of love of country or love of national spirit. This Neocon separation pf nationalism and patriotism leads to the idea for example that it is patriotic to cut down old growth redwoods for the lumber industry and for jobs, while the nationalism basis of the environmental movement to preserve national forests is somehow unpatriotic. The domestic world can be neatly divided between the patriots and the traitors, friends and enemies, where patriots are of course the Neo-Conservatives, Christian bigots and capitalist supporters. To Neocons the traitors include the liberal intellectual elites who support government regulation, central planning, and controlled development. Neo-Conservatives claim to represent a populist base against an established liberal intellectual elite. In the Neo-Conservative mind, neocons represent common sense and therefore the broadest reach of the public polity. By linking claims to a populist cause to restore common sense to government and public policy, the Neo-Conservatives pit their view of democracy against their view of liberalism. Neo-conservative democracy is conceived as populism and common sense, while liberalism is conceived as the imposition of equality where there is none and tolerance for moral lassitude where there shouldn't be any.
(31) BUSHIAN NEW AGE OF NEOCONS:
Thirty-one. The Bush administration is the classical age of Neo-Conservatism and represents a new age of Neocons. Neo-Conservative intellectuals have fashioned a new ideology for the Republican Party in the arena of foreign policy in the Bush administration. Neo-Con’s agenda is to greatly enhance American military might and to use American military power to reshape the world in the image of capitalist democracy. Republican Neo-Conservatism is a truly revolutionary doctrine in the 21st Century and may succeed in making the United States the agency of History, in case the Republican president wins the 2008 elections.
(32) PRO-SMALL GOVERNMENT:
Thirty-two. By 1973, the Neo-Conservatives label stuck. The Republican Neocon agenda appealed to southern whites and to others unhappy with the Black Power, Feminist and Gay Liberation movements. Neocons joined racist southern WASP Conservatives and disguised their anger at equality movements by talking about "small government". Neo-Conservatives instead of opposing equality and Bill of Rights directly, called for the shrinking of the state's regulatory powers to create equality. Since the private sector has little interest in equality, the reduced government meant the abandonment of social justice. Neocons emphasized the strong individualistic tradition within American social life that favors liberty more than equality.
(33) NEOCONS AS AGENCY OF HISTORY:
Thirty-three. The democratic United States, the sole super power of the world, in the Neo-Conservative philosophy is an agency of History, and the manifest destiny of America is to export Democratic Utopia worldwide, just as Judeo-Marxists wanted to export Communism. Neo-Conservatives want to export American Democracy across the planet, including China and the Islamic world, if required by preemptive attacks on tyrannies and dictatorships. The philosophy Neo-Conservatism drew its universal philosophical moorings from much from Leon Trotsky, who had a first hand knowledge of the great evil that lurked in the Judeo-Communism and Marxism. Just as Marxists wrote of "exporting Communism", Neo-Conservatism advocated in 1991 of "exporting democracy", where "democracy in one country" is insufficient, since it has to be exported around the world if it is to be sustained. To Neo-Cons, the Patriotism springs from love of the nation's past; nationalism arises out of the hope for the nation's future. Neo-Conservatism advocates that the goals of American foreign policy must go beyond a narrow, too literal definition of `national security', and it is the national interest of a world power, as this is defined by a sense of national destiny, not a myopic national security. Trotsky wanted to export Communism around the planet. Neo-Conservatism is a revolutionary philosophy as it advocates the use of forced to export Democratic Utopia worldwide.
(34) DEMOCRACY NOT SOCIAL EQUALITY:
Thirty-four. For Neo-Conservatism the Democracy, does not mean social equality. Neo-Conservative Democracy is the rule of law, the protection of property, the rights of individuals and the rights of private enterprises and rights of big corporations. "Real freedom is the freedom for a person or a nation to make a living," said Neo-Conservative President Bush. Bush defined the states that had to be opposed, "Governments that still fear and repress independent thought and creativity, and private enterprise, the human qualities that make for strong and successful societies." For neo-conservatives a "tyrant" is someone who does not adopt capitalist democracy. The ideological justification for Bush's evangelical imperialism is driven by Neocon assumptions.
(35) PRO-INDIVIDUALISM NEOCONS:
Thirty-five. The Democratic Utopia vision of the Neo-Conservative entails strengthening the nation by means of nourishing conditions favorable to the triumph of the individual and triumph of democratic institutions worldwide. Neo-Conservatism is a political philosophy, which bridges social and economic conservatives. Those who are not Conservatives view Neocons as threatening to their political agenda. American individualism is an underlying tenet of Neo-Conservatism and individualism is anathema to European-style socialism remains an obstacle to the proliferation of Socialism to the United States.
(36) ONE SUPER POWER SYSTEM:
Thirty-six. Three American giants of the twentieth century led America into its three great battles, President Woodrow Wilson into World War I, President Roosevelt into World War II, and President Truman into the Cold War. The Cold War ended with one of the great anticlimaxes in history, without a shot fired, without a revolution, the Soviet Union simply gave up and disappeared. It was the end of everything--the end of Communism, and the end of the Cold War. But the end of everything was also a beginning. On December 26, 1991, the Soviet Union died and something new was born, something utterly new, a unipolar world dominated by a single superpower unchecked by any rival and with decisive reach in every corner of the globe. This is a staggering new development in history, not seen since the fall of Rome. Charlemagne’s empire was merely western European in its reach. The Roman Empire stretched farther a field. There was another great empire in Persia, and a larger Empire in China. There is, therefore, no comparison. Even Rome is no model for what America, the sole super power, the hegemon, is today. America does not have the imperial culture of Rome. The use of the word “empire” in the American context is ridiculous.
(37) NEOCONSERVATISM IS THE REIGNING IDEOLOGY OF THE 21ST CENTURY:
Hegelian philosopher Kalki Gaur belonging to the school of German Idealism is the patron Saint and philosophical Father to the political ideology and philosophy Neoconservatism. Hegelian Neocoservatism is the Revolutionary Ideology of the 21st Century and shall reign throughout 2000 years of the Aquarius Age. There are three political world philosophies in the world, namely, Neoconservatism, Communism and Fascism. Karl Marx was a prostitute philosopher and he produced shit-philosophy of Marxism and Communism, which his tribesmen over 100 years coated the shit Marxism in gold-plated and sugar coated capsules. Neoconservative political parties shall take control of the political power in over 100 countries of the world before 2050 AD. Neoconservatives should join forces to elect a Republican Neoconservative as the President of the United States in elections 2008 and also in India, Britain, Canada, Australia, Ireland, France, Germany and Japan.
