Helmut and Krugman on Intolerance

Given the Beckrally over the weekend, here's a prescient post from Helmut in 2006. He's talking about the neocons, but we didn't have the Tea Party back then.
A pluralistic perspective is an acceptance that there are diverse comprehensive views and diverse individual answers about how best to live, which values are truly important, what goals are to be sought, how conflicts are to be resolved, and so on.
Which, he said, was the opposite of what the neocons were offering.

Similarly, today Paul Krugman predicts the carnival of intolerance that a Republican Congress would bring.
