@HawleyMO a possible escape from your cultivated political ignorance? Queer Atheist

Instead of announcing your ignorance about Cosmopolitanism, and your use of it as a political straw-man of your fictional New Republicanism, that looks like the same bourgeois respectable Racism of Reagan ( ’76’Welfare Queens Driving Cadillacs’,’80 ‘I believe in States Rights’)

Add to this inherited Dixiecrat toxicity, the usable paranoia, of the McCarthy/Mundt/McCarran/Nixon Axis, and its attack on The New Deal as ‘a generation of treason’ . Voila! there you are, the natural inheritor of this legacy, in all your brazen, cultivated ignorance, in its various dimensions : the charge that the ‘Democrats’, read New Democrats, have any interest, or the intellectual inclination, much less the  capacity to advocate for such a larger moral/political vision, is preposterous on its face! Cosmopolitanism and bankrupt Neo-Liberalism are antithetical practices and World Views !

A possible avenue of escape from your state of ignorance ?

About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
