Mark Steyn takes a look at the kind of society he thinks progressive Left-liberalism creates (perhaps more like California with a lot of green laws, high taxes and untenable public pensions if it has more cash, trade, tech and human capital, or perhaps more like Detroit if there’s no industry left and terrible management):

‘In reality, it would be neo-feudal, but with fatter, sicker peasants. It wouldn’t just be “economic inequality,” but a far more profound kind, and seething with resentments.’
