  1. Burying the White Working Class
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2016
    Liberal condescension towards white workers is code for a broader anti-working class agenda. The white working class is a zombie that doesn't know it's dead. Or if it's not fully zombified yet, its members are all too busy cleaning their AR-15s and posting racist comments on YouTube to vote for a progressive. That is, if they're not already on the Trump bandwagon, which they probably are. At least that's what the Democratic Party wants you to believe.
  2. Democracy was never intended for degenerates
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2016
    This is not a left vs right debate -- today, as a century ago, the anti-democratic impulse comes from both left and right, from both reactionaries and self-defined progressives.
  3. The Dying Days of Liberalism
    How Orthodoxy, Professionalism, and Unresponsive Politics Finally Doomed a 19th-century Project

    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2017
    It's not a small thing that has fallen here, not merely the defeat of Hillary Clinton and Americans rejecting Obama’s "legacy". We are dealing with a series of institutions, an expert class, and a network of political and corporate alliances, that is being shaken beyond repair. We are in the earliest days of a historical transition, so it's not clear what is coming next, and the labels that have been proliferating demonstrate confusion and uncertainty -- populism, nativism, nationalism, etc.
  4. Hillbilly Elitism
    The American hillbilly isn't suffering from a deficient culture. He's just poor.

    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2016
    J.D. Vance's Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis is not aimed at that underclass (few books are), but rather a middle- and upper-class readership more than happy to learn that white American poverty has nothing to do with them or with any structural problems in American economy and society and everything to do with poor folks' inherent vices.
  5. Our Generation
    Volume 18 Number 1

    Resource Type: Serial Publication (Periodical)
    Published: 1986
  6. The Reaction to Brexit Is the Reason Brexit Happened
    If you believe there's such a thing as "too much democracy," you probably don't believe in democracy at all

    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2016
    "This isn't democracy; it is Russian roulette for republics," Kenneth Rogoff recently wrote in the 'Boston Globe,' of last week's Brexit vote.

  7. Some Pundits Think the Solution to Right-Wing Populism Is Less Democracy
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2016
    The core orthodoxies of neoliberalism are under attack by populist forces, and commentators are scrambling for a response. Some are suggesting more left-wing red meat. Others, a moment of self-reflection. But a number of pundits are doing that most noxious of political commentary pastimes -- equating right and left responses to the failures of globalization and advocating that "elites" should fight back against the forces of inconvenient democracy.
