Patrick Deneen’s new book Why Liberalism Failed is off to a great start. This paragraph is essentially what I have been saying here for years now on this website:
Where have I heard this before?
Lactatia is the end of the liberated, self-actualizing, rights-bearing, expressive individualist. Well perhaps not the end but certainly a milestone on the road to Progress.
Deneen even understands why Trumpism and Ben Sasse’s American Idea isn’t the answer – the ideology of the Founding Fathers is the cancer that has brought us to this point.
