The right-wingers hate everyone and want everyone dead except for their benefactors and protectors, the top richest 1%. The uber rich want to destroy everyone, and so that becomes the automatic agenda of the Tea Party reactionaries. The super rich think that they can get almost all of what they need from other countries such as China. For the remainder, they plan on enslaving their Tea Bagging lackies, their toadies, into growing their food and getting them their trinkets. All medical care will be provided by Dr. Ron Paul and his son. Everyone else is expendable.
The Christian dominionists pretend to love Israel. In actuality, they hate Jesus because Christ, as we all know, was a Jew. These fundamentalist extremists don't believe in their own leader. They are lost souls.
John W. Dean in his book, Conservatives Without a Conscience discusses the "authoritarian, bigoted, irrational, amoral" nature of the new conservative movement, according to Publishers Weekly, Reed Business Information. Dean writes about the theory of authoritarianism of Dr. Bob Altemeyer and also mentions Stanley Milgram of Yale University who did research in the same area.
The only parallel between our present age and Hitler's Nazis is with the Tea Party Republicans. Instead of using poison gas like the Nazis, they and the urber rich are attempting to use money, the withholding of money, as a weapon, with no jobs, no health insurance for anyone except for the greedy Republicans and rich corporate people, no social insurance, no anything. Some people are authoritarian in the sense that they must follow a strong leader because they don't want to think for themselves.
Our educational system has given passing grades in social studies to students who didn't master the material and who would have given wrong answers if they were actually tested and evaluated for their learning of facts. Their irrational disposition was also not addressed by teachers. In some cases, these subject areas were either so poorly taught or were completely eliminated from the curriculum that there was no formal instruction provided. As long as someone can get some kind of dumb job that will keep them quiet when they grow up, who cares if they grow up to be well-informed citizens and decent human beings?
