THAT TRASHED PUBLIC SQUARE.
Rod Dreher's "Blindly Staggering To The Precipice" extends the argument I raised earlier this week. The key: "Donald Trump and his European counterparts are not the cause of the problem, but the result of the persistent failures of elites of both the left-wing and the right-wing parties." The essay has links to essays by observers of the left, and of the right, and the consensus appears to be that the gentry will not be able to fortify in gated communities and ride the troubles out unscathed. There's the occasional zinger, e.g. "Do you mean that the working class is not satisfied that the Left is preoccupied with genderqueering their kids?" But there's much more. Go, and follow the links, and draw your own conclusions.
