Once again, I chalk this up in the realm of “too good to be true”:
“If the old ideologies no longer make sense, it’s not a surprise that a GOP elite dominated by cosmopolitan, pro-immigration Wall Streeters is getting winded in its attempt to chase after the Republican base, which wants government hands off their Medicare and a few 30-foot walls along the Mexican border. Trump may turn out to be a blip in this election cycle. But some days Trumpism looks like the future. Instead of parties divided by questions of political economy — crudely speaking, socialism or capitalism — we may be having debates between the globalized economy and actual communities: market or nation. The character of cities and places will be put against the demands of an invisible hand. Parties committed to diversity and breaking up the traditional cultures of their nations will find themselves allied with big business and the engines of the global market. Parties committed to preserving the national character may find themselves defending the 20th century’s legacy of national welfare states.
In other words, get ready for a hyper-capitalist left and an anti-capitalist right.”
In fact, this is exactly what I advocated on my previous blog in 2006-2008, and even further back on various forums in 2001-2005. All these Chamber of Commerce and Wall Street guys are on the same side as the SPLC on issue after issue. They all need to be in the same political party. As things stand today, in every election cycle, the White working class always loses no matter who wins.
Note: Robert Lindsay recently called for an Alternative Left.
