      tiny authoritarian groups too that even the Bircher kooks don't like to openly acknowledge, like the Nazis and the Identity Christians.

      But I was not comparing the marginalization of the looney right and the looney left---I was comparing their hyper-authoritarian cultlike ideological reliance on a centralized structure usually dominated by one person.

      That's why it was so easy for the Trotskyite neocons to become rightwing neocons, without much shift in worldview.
