E.J. Dionne’s Piece in The Chronicle of Higher Education

It’s called the Liberal Moment

It’s worth a read, suggesting we may be on the cusp of a new progressive movement in America.

I wrote a post about the intellectually immature, somewhat anti-rational progressive Matt Stoller.  If this is progressivism…then I’m not so sure that progressivism is ready for the mainstream.

I think one story in the next election will be how disorganized and anti-intellectual some parts of the left have become, and just how much the Democratic nominee will have to appeal to the roots to win, while still finding a center.   

If this is the new progressivism, and progressivism has a golden opportunity, then I’m not that impressed.   

Though, as Dionne points out, it may be nothing new in American politics.
