Neo-con history lesson

The July issue of Harpers has a superb take on the relatively recent rise of modified neo-conservative sensibilities and its history chronicled from the 1970's to present. It also includes an interesting (and surprising) account of the link between the conservatism, Abramoff brand lobbyists, the erstwhile apartheid government of South Africa and Angolan guerilla leader Jonas Savimbi. Kept me awake during my ride home.
