  •  marketing and revelation from on high (9+ / 0-)

    Between the cynics who think the marketing is all that matters and the dogmatists who think that people just need to be told what to think and do more clearly and forcefully, conservatives really can't think beyond their messaging.  It's not just that there is nothing beyond the messaging other than naked power and greed, but that a central part of that power is the ability to make people think, feel, and do what you want them to.  Conservatism by its very nature is incapable of changing the message to suit the audience, of changing the product to suit the customer; that would defeat the whole purpose - we're the ones who decide, not them.
