Let’s take a brief excursion into history. The fantasy that the US has been a utopia for working white men is facile and fallacious. The violence around unions at the end of the nineteenth century, the Great Depression, and the creeping inflation of the 1970’s were all periods in which working men suffered. Information and information processing as a source of wealth have supplanted industry just as industry supplanted land. History does these things. Globalism supplanted national economies just as they supplanted local economies. History does this. Let’s not pretend that a wooly-haired faux-messiah can turn the tide of history.
