  •  It could be argued Obama and Clinton (0+ / 0-)

    are liberal solely in the arena of identity politics.  Even there, Obama falls down when it's time for clarity.  

    Elsewhere, these librul Dem stalwarts toe the line, making small corrections in course of the Reagan/Bushco juggernaut.  They place no tax on unfettered greed, or militarism, or fascism for that matter.  These they cheer.

    Only where the system is falling apart, as in healthcare, do they commit to "reform" that amounts to retrenchment more than change.

    In this context, where identity subsumes outright fascism without batting an eyelid, the relatively free-wheeling identity politics of our youth might not, and probably don't, amount to much.

    Partisanship is not the heart of politics.  Partisanship is the abdication of politics.

    •  Sorry, but our generation.... (0+ / 0-)

      ...and the generation behind us (Millenials) get things done that will effect people positively - we don't worry about the dialectic or try to raise consciousness.

      9-11 changed everything? Well, Katrina changed it back.
