    I found Spring's analyses both informative and bone-chilling. The Right is creepy, the Left is soft, and I really don't want to agree so much with the Green Party's position on education. Also, given that it was written in 1996, there's a delightful bit of temporal dissonance in some of the discussions, which is fun. I found Spring's analyses both informative and bone-chilling.
