The unspoken American tragedy here is the complete loss of any kind of legitimate conservative party. I argued back in 2016 that the whole thing was a disaster because the true conservative leader was Hilary Clinton and the core Democratic Party.

Neoliberalism was the end of the Western world’s conservative tradition. That has held up. We now have the new progressive movement that is planetary, diverse, and post socialist and was presaged by Bernie but now effectively led by AOC. The Democratic Party should split with the conservative liberal core resurrecting the Republican party as an effort to revive liberalism. The main party would become Democratic Socialists or Post-socialists.

That would create a political reform movement that could lead the transition to the next stage in battling climate disaster and sustainability. That is a completely different world in which all of this stuff will simply disappear.
