Who Really Benefits from Right-Wing Populism
Idpol is result not cause--is actually an ad hoc working class politics and basically the only one we've got right now--is one of those insights so basic and fundamental it's genuinely surprising how little representation it gets in the wider discourse.
Absolutely here for the TNR villain cameo.
I don't think this is giving nearly enough credit to the need for both racial and gender based progress and reform *within the labor movement.* It's not just a matter of liberal identitarian fracturing that leads to racial minorities and women to form and turn to organizations that promote their interests, but a straightforward material complaint: their interests weren't/aren't represented by Left-labor organizations and politics that are inevitably imbued with the racism and misogyny of the broader culture. To say that they shouldn't do so - that it's a fracturing that gives away the game to the forces of conservatism and resentment - comes pretty close to buying in to the broader social hierarchies proposed by those forces.
