← Essay of the week: The New Puritanism

Of course, such moral-ism is creeping back in vogue in the U.S. as well. The question is: what are the moralists going to do with all sex-addicted politicians and religious leaders in their midst and ranks. Oh, I know, confess their sins before the correct entities, then win in the polls and return to the pulpits.

Or, on the purely political side and when they get out of prison, like G. Gordon Liddy for instance, go on the very profitable conservative speech circuit and wind up with a conservative radio talk show (there are so many other examples).
