“Liberalism“, writes Roger Simon today, “as an ideology is in its death throes. Only the power trip remains.” Maybe that explains why the president is having trouble coming up with an agenda for his second term.
Roger reached his conclusion, in part, by observing the reluctance to all too many liberals to engage in serious debate:
Given that their ideology is dying, no wonder liberals no longer want to debate the issues. They avoid serious discussion at every possible juncture, changing the conversation to putative racism, sexism, classism — anything but the proverbial elephant in the room, economic demise.
Read the whole thing. Something to ponder.
Is Roger right to ask if liberalism is dead?
