You actually touch on something interesting here. The murky worlds of the
militia incorporate a number of "back to the land" types of themes. With
mainstream environmentalism in the back pocket of the oil companies, its
no surprise that rural Americans soak up a lot of right-wing ideas.
Costner may be viewed from within this context. Anyhow, I might be wrong.
