this is kind of fascinating. i'm imagining a future republican party that's dominated by "real conservative" values of the sort that nonreligious conservatives love to tout: personal freedom, free enterprise, free internets, darwinian competition in all things, no handouts. opposed to this is a democratic party that advocates limited freedoms and federal oversight/assistance in the name of social justice and "decency", and which counts on the altruistic sympathies of religious leaders.

I believe that is the correct prediction for how the Third American Party System is going to be, just a matter of time for it to all play out. IMO we are in the death throes of the Second Party System.

i.e. the two main parties will basically be Libertarian-lite and Christian Democrat.

Were it so? In the Anglo-American two party system we still adhere to, the two poles must contain multitudes. The multitudes are shifting generationally but should I live another forty years I would love to see the attritional demise of the 'conservative' wing of the Right (they will be outnumbered ethnically for one thing) but I don't even pray that there will be a Christian Democrat party of any interest. The libertarians and Xtiansists have tried to square the circle w/the Gospel and Mammonism for long enough but it cannot last.

So as of today, RIP my most used shared-content site of the last half-year or so, library.nu. Also RIP ifile.it. Supposedly both casualties of an operation by a German association of publishers.

my man Kirby just finished part 4 of Everything Is A Remix and it's the best one yet
thinking of the Anti-SOPA contingent in the Tea Party; when Kirby pulls up an image of the aged Copyright Act of 1790, it really does strike me how this issue should go right across both party lines

Anonymous is getting sloppy - its pretty obvious to me a better date would be the Ides of March rather than a date with no symbolic significance.
