The Once and Future Liberal
After Identity PoliticsBook - 2017
Mark Lilla offers an impassioned, tough-minded, and stinging look at the failure of American liberalism over the past two generations. Instead, as Lilla argues, American liberalism fell under the spell of identity politics, with disastrous consequences. Driven originally by a sincere desire to protect the most vulnerable Americans, the left has now unwittingly balkanized the electorate, encouraged self-absorption rather than solidarity, and invested its energies in social movements rather than in party politics.
