Newt Gingrich

Newt Gingrich is a champion of anticipatory democracy and neoclassical economics. He was instrumental in the deep framing of issues by the Republican Party? in the early 1990s:

  • Five Principles of American Civilization by Newt Gingrich?
  • seven essential personal strengths for Americans by Newt Gingrich?
  • Contract With America?
  • Creating a New Civilization? by Alvin Toffler?, Heidi Toffler? and Gingrich

Gingrich also debated Ralph Nader? in 2001 which you can see on the Internet.

Gingrich emphasizes Nation, Family, Work not necessarily in that order.

His work has been compared to that of Mussolini? and of Petain?, the corporatist ruler of Vichy France?, by John Ralston Saul?. page 30, The Unconscious Civilization by John Ralston Saul, 1995, in part for leaving out mention of liberty?, equality or democracy as basic moral values.

Gingrich's simple-minded emphasis on the transactional has also been compared to the assumptions of Michael Pilling, notably by Craig Hubley, one of the most irritating known trolls on the entire Internet:

"Like Gingrich, those who don't understand the underlying assumptions of the ideology that they espouse will become the most useful mouthpieces for it, but also the most easily discarded. The rise and fall of such people is as predictable as tides." - Craig Hubley
