33. an unqualified yes.
The social upheaval due to radical millinarian groups in Europe in the middle ages was considerable. Now granted, they didn't have nuclear bombs at their disposal, but they did their best. Besides, I'd argue that bush is not pushing a millenarian vision, but is acting out of greed and hubris. And though Dominionists and other wingnuts have influence and power, they don't have enough to make it happen. And who's been pushing endless war the hardest? The neocons, and they aren't faith based, by and large.
