72. Not really
The only real similarity the article correctly points out is the factions. The new left worked towards good and ascertainable goals, many of which were achieved. They also faced down an establishment that very opposed to progress and the movement was diverse and young, the tea party is very mature overall. When the new left movement was over, a lot of the folks involved became real leaders and made even more of a difference. The tea party doesn't have that, they cannot have a future being an older, far-right, lily white. The demographics of the future don't support that, we are headed towards a progressive era.
