What the heck is a Christian Reconstructionist?

What does this mean? some kind of literalism?

A Christian Reconstructionist is a Dominionist. He takes seriously the Bible’s commands to the godly to take dominion in the earth. This is the goal of the gospel and the Great Commission. The Christian Reconstructionist believes the earth and all its fullness is the Lord’s: that every area dominated by sin must be “reconstructed” in terms of the Bible. This includes, first, the individual; second, the family; third, the church; and fourth, the wider society, including the state. — from The Creed of Christian Reconstruction by Rev. Andrew Sandlin

    Actually, I believe the term means “theocrat”, more or less.
