The following was taken from the website. It does not entirely represent my views, and in fact I think it lays those who created it wide open for the same kind of flaying the left gives the right for being "black-and-white" in the way things are viewed.

Nontheless, if the following is looked at as a set of general tendencies, with acknowledgement that there are always exceptions to the rule, then... it makes a point. I think the point it makes to me, that is, there isn't much difference between Osama bin Laden and the neoconservatives when it comes to certain things, is valid. While the two cultures are radically different, the force of fundamentalism which drives both Osama and the neocons may be frighteningly similar.
