Paper is Warning Americans of "anti-Federalists"!Submitted by Vots on Fri, 01/18/2013 - 14:01
A West Point think tank is warning Americans of an “anti-federalist” movement, which supports “civil activism, individual freedoms and self-government.”
This paper typically focuses on "al Qaeda and other Islamic extremists attempting to gain power in Asia, the Middle East and Africa through violence."
The report also draws a link between the mainstream conservative movement and the violent “far right,” and describes liberals as “future oriented” and conservatives as living in the past.
“While liberal worldviews are future- or progressive -oriented, conservative perspectives are more past-oriented, and in general, are interested in preserving the status quo.” the report says. “The far right represents a more extreme version of conservatism, as its political vision is usually justified by the aspiration to restore or preserve values and practices that are part of the idealized historical heritage of the nation or ethnic community.”
