[quote]Abstract: The past decade has seen the coalescence of a new ideology that
envisions social movements in a cataclysmic struggle against global capitalist
Empire. Controlled by U.S. militarism and multinational corporations, in
cahoots with Zionism, Empire contaminates environments and destroys cultures.
Its defeat will bring about a new era of social justice and sustainable
development, in which the diverse cultures harmoniously share the earth. Is
this a totalitarian ideology? From fascist and communist precedents, we learn
that lovers of renewed humanity are not sufficiently motivated by abstract
ideals. They must also identify humanity√Ę??s enemy, the cause of all suffering.
Equipped with a scapegoat, diverse communities can achieve solidarity
through shared execration.[/quote]

Does anyone else get the feeling the author was trying to jam in as many buzz-words as he could so his article would show with the most diverse set of google-searches ever devised?
