The Horror of Neoconservatism by Martin Kelly

Writers like Pat Buchanan and Paul Craig Roberts are right to label the adherents of the neoconservative movement as ‘Jacobins’, fanatics for power, spiritual descendants of the upper classes who directed the reign of terror following the French Revolution, willing to damn with a spot of ink, willing to trash the bona fides of those who speak against them. As a recanted and repenting neoconservative, I suppose that makes me a Jacobin too.
