Read this brilliant, long essay in the New York magazine to understand how Plato described all this, and it is happening just as he predicted.
History tells us what may happen next with Brexit & Trump

I’m confused about this approving reference to an article by Andrew Sullivan in which he misreads Plato (a notoriously anti-democratic writer) to proclaim that all the ills of society, and primarily the rise of Trump, are a result of…identity politics, which happens to be the same old dead horse Andrew Sullivan has been beating for years now. If you’re interested in an Athenian-democracy view of Brexit or current events, you’re better off looking to Eidolon rather than the New York magazine.
