      The purification is some sort of violent purge, a secular apocalypse that will be the end of the world for everyone else.  Part of this is the old libertarian fantasy of dumping paper money and living off barter and pine cones.  OK I made up the pine cones part, but that's filling the blanks further than they ever have. Libertarians definitely year for purification.

      The Tea Party is all about this, and the "spiritual" reawakening is central to Fascism.

      Got a link to the NYT article?
