So according to this gal, the answer is... Evangelicalism?!

"Let us all unite under the banner of blind religous fervor and create a new happy utopian society!!!" Yea, I've heard that one before.

I've only glanced through so far but it looks hugely interesting! Thank you for posting it.

Something similar (though remembering I havent read your article) might be Op-Ed Columnist - That '30s Feeling - NYTimes.com

I recently re-read Paper Money (1981) by "Adam Smith" (economist George Goodwin) and was struck by how we fell into this current economic fiasco in the 1970s "energy crisis" when ownership of the power in the world began to change, and how we've only been maneuvering to keep our heads above water (have managed mostly, with a few duck-unders) since then. No new solutions because there are none. The whole world, not just the US.
