Libs being told to read the dead white men to find moral clarity. Somehow I found that rather amusing.
Here the author complains that the left has nothing affirmative to offer. Small wonder. So it resorts to the universally held belief on the left that the right is racist, bigoted, homophobic, and etc. and the left is not.
The author of the piece speaks of the author of the book:
Ms. Neiman points to many factors in the left's retreat from universal principles. The demise of socialism has played a role, as has despair over the Bush administration and the war in Iraq. But the real source, she suggests, is a "conceptual collapse," a self-destructive descent into identity politics, postmodern theory and victimology.
This is all correct, but both authors are wrong, these are not the cause but the symptoms of a cancer implanted by THE FRANKFURT SCHOOL.
