One writer wrote that Leo Strauss believed, “perpetual deception of the citizens by those in power is critical because they need to be led, and they need strong rulers to tell them what’s good for them”.

Reading America Alone, that seems to me to be precisely the neo-conservative mindset – profoundly anti-democratic while claiming to act in the name of freedom.
