The new totalitarians

I heard this term for the first time on Wednesday on The Rush Limbaugh Show. Rush didn’t invent the term, but he described it quite succinctly, as he tends to do. This is along the lines of my last blog post, also made on Wednesday, although I didn’t come up with a term to describe the new totalitarians. Says Rush:

The new totalitarian is terrifying because it means that for a fair number of people in what’s supposed to be a democracy, winning simply isn’t enough. They are not really trying to capture something as pedestrian as political equality nor are they satisfied that if they get it. They’re not really seeking a win in the courts or a legal solution. Those are all just merit badges to be collected along the way to a more important goal and that is you will agree and you will love them and you will believe them and you will support them and you will recant your dissent. And we’re going to keep pounding you until you do, and that is what is happening.
