Some people talkin’ progressive reform, other people talkin’ conservative reform. Well, one of those seems to have done a better job than the other of marrying theoretical speculation to empirical observation. Plus, it seems to me that if you exile the identitarian fundamentalists, the postmodernist academics, the vestigial Marxists, and the social media garbage babies from the Left, at most you’re left with…welfare-state liberalism. I dunno, maybe “true” socialism is hiding down a well with the 12th Imam.


A salutary reminder to conservatives of how wrong the nicest leftist can be.
