    The corruption of the Russian revolution and pure leftist ideals into a authoritarian death machine was a failure that cannot be understated. I still say the root cause of American Conservatism's intellectual decay is the Manichean struggle against Communism. It radicalized them, it birthed Ayn Rand. And when it ended suddenly, anti-climatically ended...they missed it. So they leaped at the chance to make Islamic Terrorism the new adversary. Goldwater himself was appalled at the state of things by the 1990s.
