Re: Crooke: The ‘Last Man’ Teleology and the Fall of the West
There is a tragic irony here for the bourgeois left in the United States, and, arguably elesewhere. At a time when the 'working class' hasn't been as 'radicalized' for over half a century or more, about their falling living standards, the destruction of their communities, their indebtedness, their miserable work conditions, failing healthcare, poor education, wars they don't understand or support... the left abandon the class war analysis and instead embrace identitiy and gender politics to an extraordinary degree, that alienates them even further from the lives and concerns of vast swathes of the working class.
