Watch the video.
It is a Rorschach test of the post-liberalism debate.
Is the future of American conservatism going to be synonymous with the defense and preservation of classical liberalism and free-market capitalism as it has been since the Reagan era?
There are radicals who would like to stamp out Christian liberty. But the Valyrian steel that stops the cultural white walker is pluralism buttressed by classical liberalism, not Christian statism.

After watching this video, David French would unsheath his sword made out of Valyrian steel to defend pluralism buttered by classical liberalism against the forces of the gutter right who advocate Christian statism. Rich Lowry would argue that post-liberalism is a distraction. The mission of the American Right is to reward Google with tax cuts, deregulation and guest workers.

In the other corner, you have people like us who watch this video and notice that a transsexual is being treated as normal and mainstream while Soph is being treated as fringe. Sundar Pichai is eager to point out that Google has removed 9 million videos last quarter and is now ranking videos based on “quality” and is downranking “borderline content” adjacent to “hate speech.” It is also labeling videos “controversial” and debunking them with “fact checking” and “authoritative sources.” In other words, it is simply editing the platform now from a progressive perspective. The New York Times is simultaneously condemning YouTube radicalization while defending Draq Queen Story Time.
Should the goal of American conservatism be to ensure that Google pays less in federal taxes, that federal regulators go easier on the company and that it has access to a greater supply of cheap temporary workers many of whom are from foreign countries? This is David Frenchism.
Alternatively, Hunter Wallaceism is the position that Google should be trust busted by federal regulators, broken up into tiny pieces and forced to maintain free speech as a common carrier like AT&T, that it should have to pay a VAT tax and that its supply of cheap labor from abroad should be cut off to benefit American workers who should have greater job security and be rewarded for investing in their education.
