Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Pretty Much This

An incisive takedown of the Jacobin Left.  I would disagree that they author's "alt-left" is a problem, because it is largely powerless, unlike the alt-right.  But it is certainly a problem in efforts to fight the worst of Trumpistan.  The idea that anyone with leftist impulses could join "Cult 45" is mind-boggling.  But if you are wedded to the idea of revolution, then it doesn't matter who starts the shooting.

And as I've said many times before, revolutions fail.
