Jacobin: We Can’t Cancel Ourselves Into a Better World

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I would probably also be labeled a “far-right propagandist.”


“Changing that reality is immensely difficult. But it’s easy enough to get a Democratic Socialists of America convention to enforce rules as extreme as prohibiting clapping during debate in the name of accommodating the disabled — something that resulted in a notorious montage of clips circulated two years ago by the far-right propagandist Tucker Carlson. …

The effect of the behavior captured by Tucker’s clips — cherry-picked and wielded in bad faith by a man who clearly doesn’t have our best interests at heart, but still real — was to make socialists look like strange scolds all too ready to excoriate each other for daring to clap instead of waggling their fingers or for using “gendered language” like “hey guys.” The effect of abandoning a candidate on the basis of unproven accusations is to make left-wing primary challengers extremely easy to neutralize. All of this is troubling enough on its own. …

This helps to explain the strange excesses of performative radicalism we often find on the online left. Taking extreme positions that alienate most people outside of our political bubble often feel like a way of taking an even clearer and sharper stand against those injustices. …”

I don’t even really disagree with Ben Burgis on imperialism or social democracy.

It is clear to me though that the political divide in this country between the Left and Right is centered on culture and it is getting worse because the two parties are resorting around this axis. The voters who the Democrats are steadily losing whether they are White or non-White tend to be culturally conservative and the ones who they are gaining whether they are White or non-White tend to be culturally liberal. The country is becoming less racially polarized and more polarized based on education and values.
