The article discusses the implications of the rise of instant communications technology and the emergence of a grass-roots anti-government movement for traditional liberalism in the U.S. One example of the power of technology combined with grass-roots conservative organizations to shake up the liberal establishment is the failure of a lobbying reform bill. Upon the discovery of a problematic provision of the bill, conservative organizations were mobilized through the use of instant communications technology. The lobbying bill failed due to a filibuster in the Senate.
