Frank DiStefano has the best take in American politics.
What is the new grand issue of our times? I would say it is radically changing demographics, the relentless pace of deracination and cultural degeneration, the rise of woke supremacy, a hated technocratic elite that has lost its legitimacy, a legacy media that censors and stifles debate which was built for the print and television era, a globalized economy that has impoverished the working class while enriching an affluent and privileged minority, a corrupt political system in the pocket of oligarchs and the looming challenge of the obsolescence of work caused by the technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
The political establishment does not want to hear this. It wants to preserve the status quo and keep things the way that they have always been. The angry people who object to the status quo and who insist on raising the real issues are branded “the rise of far-right domestic extremism.” In reality, this is just the normal churn of American politics. It is the beginning of the third great populist movement in American history after the Jacksonians and the supporters of Bryan around the turn of the 20th century.
