Hi Andrew — appreciate the compliment and comment. I agree with you, actually. If it weren’t a response to broad sweeping conclusions, I’d likely be thinking about it all differently as well. Not least because, in my head, I’m still about 23 and don’t see younger colleagues as separate.
I think it’s important that anyone reading that link is aware the tagline to the website is ‘white identity, politics and culture’. It’s the kind of website that promotes articles complaining about ‘the holocaust lobby’.
Saying ‘I think we’ve done a stupid thing’ doesn’t necessarily mean I think the people who voted were stupid. In my previous piece (which this was a sequel to), I made very clear that I think this came out of disenfranchisement that has been going on for decades, leading to more and more resentment, anger and fear. I think most of us understand this, but we don’t think what has happened is the solution.
