Culturally Liberal and Nothing More

From: andrew cooke <andrew@...>

Date: Wed, 25 May 2016 00:16:30 -0400

http://fredrikdeboer.com/2016/05/16/our-nightmare/

  Nativist demagoguery, in turn, will simply deepen the liberal
  elite's distaste for talking about economic issues as such. After
  all, it will be crypto-racists talking about economic populism the
  most. With politics devolving further and further into pure
  tribalism, this type of guilt by association becomes preeminent. The
  basic political argument, in such a landscape, amounts to "you sound
  like the bad guys."

  ...

  "Our political future: a snakepit of insane fascists on one side, &
  on the other, a Wall Street party that's culturally liberal &
  nothing more." Whenever I talk about this, I get people saying 'lol
  that's already here!' But their cynicism reveals a deeper
  naivete. First, they overestimate how much work has actually been
  done to diversify the elite, which remains stubbornly male and
  white. Second, they don't recognize how much worse this can all
  get. It can always, always get worse. Today, there is a least an
  ostensible connection between the liberalism of diversity and the
  leftism of equality. Tomorrow, even that thin thread might be cut
  forever, and so much the worse for us.

Have to add...

From: andrew cooke <andrew@...>

Date: Wed, 25 May 2016 14:52:17 -0400

...that there's a worry here.  It's tempting to say that the current
idenitity-based politics doesn't address povery.  But afaik it
actually does, to a large extent, because that is strongly correlated
with race.  To the point where you can argue, iiuc, that the "poor
American whites" are upset largely because they're heading towards the
quality of life that blacks already experience.  Hence the accusation
that it's only news when it happens to whites.

Now, the article doesn't really make that argument explicitly.  It's
talking about a future where indentity politics results only in token
support at the elite level, with little change elsewhere.
