    There is an inevitable movement within the nuCon clan…

    Zack Beauchamp outlined how a specific class of far-right, theocratic, pro-Trump intellectuals have concluded from Republicans’ 2022 midterm performance that democracy must be discarded in order to save the country. It is not out of the question for a majority of nuCons to conclude that democracy is no longer working for them.

    Declan Leary, managing editor of The American Conservative, argues that Republicans simply didn’t go far enough in pushing a platform of illiberalism.

    “Leary hails from a particular element of the New Right: the so-called ‘integralists,’ Catholic arch-conservatives who believe that the United States government should be replaced with a religious Catholic state,” wrote Beauchamp. “Integralists are a part of a broader ‘postliberal’ trend among right-wing intellectuals that traces the cultural decay of American society back to its ruling liberal political philosophy: the doctrine that government should liberate people to pursue their own visions of the good life. Liberalism, they argue, promotes licentiousness and a corrosive individualism: It is the root cause of social ills like drug addiction, ‘deaths of despair,’ and family breakdown.”

    “Postliberals believe that instead of protecting individual freedom, government should aim to promote the ‘common good’ or ‘highest good’: to create a citizenry where people live good lives as defined by scripture and religious doctrine. This leads them to support an even more active role for the state than even the national conservatives, endorsing aggressive efforts to legislate morality…”

    “A minority of New Right thinkers responded to defeat by suggesting the electorate is too far gone for conservatives to ever triumph — and even questioning the value of democracy itself,” wrote Beauchamp. “‘Democracy did not end slavery, and democracy will not end abortion,’ declared Chad Pecknold, a self-described ‘postliberal’ theologian at Catholic University.

    • The worry-wart from West of me quoted:

      Leary hails from a particular element of the New Right: the so-called ‘integralists,’ Catholic arch-conservatives who believe that the United States government should be replaced with a religious Catholic state,” wrote Beauchamp.

      Sadly, only about 23% of Americans are Catholic; we are vastly outnumbered by our Separated Brethren. THus, I don’t really see us replacing the United States government with a religious Catholic state.

      It was a few years back, and despite my eidetic memory, I cannot recall who said it, Jen Psaki, perhaps, but someone from the late Obama Administration opined that so many Catholic intellectuals were pro-life because Catholicism was ‘acceptable’ in Washington while some of the evangelical Protestant denominations were not.

      Of course, Catholics, being more intelligent than most, dominate the Supreme Court, and it was that Catholic majority which overturned the repugnant Roe decision, so we are seeing more and more discrimination against Catholics from the left.

    • James Lewis says:

      Dear Elwood:

      “It is not out of the question for a majority of nuCons to conclude that democracy is no longer working for them.”

      You still don’t get it.

      We are not a “democracy.”

      We are a “Republic.”

      That means the majority does not always rule.

    “They actually attacked me so hard. They tried to get my name taken off the ballot. This was earlier this year, and I couldn’t defend myself and raise money for attorney fees. My attorney fees are approximately around $700,000,” Greene said.
