Actually I think it can be said to be a general Anglo-American reactionary thing. Anglo-American religion and politics is messed up. If I was going to be a liberal, I would just be a communist because that is taking the Enlightenment ideals to their conclusion. Neo-conservatism and paleo-conservatism is just conservative liberalism of the 18th century. It is based on deism and secular humanism. It's a result, I am realising, of Western rationalism, but I am trying to avoid getting to emotional in my journey east. But one does begin to tire or Western legalaism and rationalism. It's such a deep issue, and not black and white. It's why I am not sure there is much hope in American politics. Everything is black and white, socialist vs capitalist, conservative vs liberal, constitution vs statism, liberatairn vs statist. The simple thing is to blame rationalism, though its not that simple.
