Interesting lady. I find her ideas to be highly agreeable. Her analysis of the state of the contemporary Left and its relationship to our societies is very much in line with my own. I will have to purchase her book.

As an aside, I find it typical of the modern Left to attract such simpletons as the individual who would label Prof. Dean a "fascist." This type of cowardly and self-centered mentality has, in large part, contributed to the Left's diminished political presence.
