4 mins 6 mths

Supposedly we live in an age defined economically, where the dollar worth of everything matters most. Why then are our politicians and their strategists forever focusing attention upon cultural stuff? The war on woke, the attacks on LGBTQI folk, and the endless anti-elite ethos.

We the people vs those individuals too superior to represent our interests. These are all manipulations and part and parcel of the politics of grievance.
