A liberal friend lamenting the loss of economic concerns in the Democratic party

The host is arguing that today’s political figures are race hustling and ignoring economic projects and programs.

But isn’t this the macro picture of what happened over the course of the last few years? Cultural Marxism has replaced Economic Marxism?

Instead of telling the history of the world in terms of proletariat versus bourgeoisies (economic class warfare), it is women, gays and darker skinned races against straight white men (cultural class warfare).

From my vantage point you’ve been left behind as a proponent of a philosophy which has a long history of radicalizing extremely quickly and leaving its moderates behind, if not declaring them enemies.

Moderate leftists who think they are victims, for example, economic victims, very quickly find out that the aren’t victim *enough*. People who are bigger victims than you quickly push you aside and claim to possess a superior moral position because they are superior victims.

Anyway. I will avoid an argument. Feel free to tell me why I’m wrong.
