Well, first, let's not get into a liberal versus conservative Hollywood
argument. I could debate that until the cows came home! *L*

What I meant was that Heinlein's far right conservativism isn't any more
realistic than far left Marxism. It requires people to behave in
ways for it to work. I mean, seriously, the only people who get to vote
those who enter the military? Aside from the fact that any party that
tried to
put that into effect would be committing political suicide, the economic
effects would be awful.
