I'm reading a book called Hella Nation by Evan Wright (Generation Kill). It's about sub-cultures in America. People with 'completely opposing attitudes towards today's dominant culture.' Weird social and political groups of people, that are either self organized and constructed, or exist as a result of the fallout from the society around them.

In one segment of the book, Wright explores a neo-Nazi society calling themselves the 'Aryan Nations' and their religion, 'Christian Identity'.

This segment (about one of my favourite films) made me laugh...and wince.

...Pastor Butler lays the blame for the degeneration of social values on the Jewish influence in Hollywood, citing the movie Independence Day as an example. "A nigger and a Jew save the whole white race!" Pastor Butler says, outraged at the preposterousness of it.
