Back to the Future? Future visions of Heinlein

Wow, I've never read any of his books but maybe I should. As noted in a post at Talk To Action, in 1952, sci-fi author Robert A. Heinlein spun a chilling tale about a theocratic totalitarian takeover of the U.S. government. In the book's postscript Heinlein made several astute observations and expressed his concern regarding the direction the country was headed, many of which have uncanny (perhaps prophetic?) parallels to the political aims of the current-day Religious Right.

Reading this after having just seen "V for Vendetta" is a tad creepy...
