For readers interested in the history of the neoconservative movement in America this piece by Brian Giles may fill in some blanks:

"...The term 'neoconservative' makes less and less sense the more it is explored. Conservatism is based on preserving the status quo and opposing progressive changes, but the neocons were radicals at heart, defying the very meaning of 'conservative.'"

Surprisingly, in the 1960s, Richmond’s own Supreme Court Justice, the late Lewis F. Powell, Jr., played a role in the story, according to Giles. Read the story in the Weekly Dig: The Best Little Paper in Boston.
