A letter home, after the failure of a twenty-first century theocracy.
I recognize that I'm responding to George Turner's post, but I'm not accusing modern Democrats or current liberals of anything.
"those Progressives were, very often, *Republicans*. And, hilariously, evangelicals."
Really? Not as far as I've read. The Republicans of the time were against Prohibition on the grounds that it interfered with businessmen making money (albeit in the sense of "we wanna sell cheap hooch to blacks and Jews who are too dumb to know better", not anything so noble as freedom of action or personal responsibility.)
