Well, this is some deeply muddled - and from the conservative POV, highly self-serving - thinking.
Two degree Steve cites this rather interesting post at OKTrends - which has some good points, but is pretty badly flawed.
If you're going to read further in this post, I suggest you first read the links to one degree Steve, two degree Steve, and the source, in that order (same links as above.) Because this is my reply to one degree Steve, and stands better on a foundation of context. (Typos corrected, slight editing for clarity)
