TEHRAN, June 8 (MNA) -- The neoconservative movement is widely regarded as the ideological foundation behind the current government of the United States, but this is not the case.
The Moral Majority was being used by the plutocrats to promote their agenda. Many members of the loose coalition eventually realized this. Nowadays, the remnants of the Moral Majority are used by the Republicans as a voter bank in the Southern states, but they have no illusions about being the kingmakers they once thought they were.

The Neocons are basically being used today in the same way as the Moral Majority was used in the 1980s. However, they do not have a strong regional power base. And, they too will probably soon be cast into the dustbin of history when they have outlived their usefulness.

Political analysts who believe the Neocons are powerful in their own right have misread current events. They base their conclusion largely on the fact that it seems that the Neocon’s infamous plan for U.S. world hegemony, the Project for a New American Century, is definitely being implemented.
