And he doesn't even like Trump

Even the political pundits who dislike Trump admit he is on to something. Consider the following quote:

"What makes Trump so appealing to so many voters is that the establishment does seem unusually clueless these days. The great American post-Cold War project of seeking peace and security through the construction of a New World Order based on liberal internationalism and American power doesn’t seem to be working very well, and it’s not hard to conclude that neither the neoconservatives nor the Obama-ites really know what they are doing.

"When it comes to the economy, it’s been clear since the financial crisis of 2008 that something is badly awry and that the economists, so dogmatic and opinionated and so bitterly divided into quarreling schools, aren’t sure how the system works anymore, and have no real ideas about how to make the world system work to the benefit of ordinary voters in the United States.

"With the PC crowd and the Obama administration hammering away at transgender bathroom rights as if this was the great moral cause of our time, and with campus Pure Thought advocates collapsing into self parody even as an epidemic of drug abuse and family breakdown relentlessly corrodes the foundations of American social cohesion, it’s hard to believe that the establishment has a solid grip on the moral principles and priorities a society like ours needs."


What Trump did was champion a cause that had no leader. He is a man of the people. Scoff all you want, but the billionaire in his gold-and-marble penthouse apartment in Manhattan is closer to the people of West Virginia than any of our senators or congressmen.

That's why he got 77% of the primary vote. That's the highest of any state.

  1. "And he doesn't even like Trump" is putting it mildly. Mead actually thinks the economy is doing GREAT, and that takes a huge dump of Obama/Hillary shilling and anti-fact, ant-Trump to accomplish that!

  2. "Drug abuse and family breakdown" and "moral principles and priorities" are mutually exclusive. Where you have one you will not have the other. I believe the root of America's problems is family breakdown. The family is where children learn moral principles and priorities. And who has been the major perpetrator of family breakdown in America? Yep. The U.S. Government. When you subsidize women to have children without fathers in the picture you will get more of them. Men have become marginalized while the women follow their own path and the children become drug addicts and criminals. I blame The Great Society experiment and subsequent programs. They may be from the government but they aren't here to help. - Elric

  3. I haven't read Mead in months. There is something about him that rubs me the wrong way. Thanks for this link because I just now figured out what it is.

    Mead's writing reminds me of Garrison Keillor's work before he finally gave up on the mask to fully and publicly embrace the contemptuous and contemptible leftist piece of filth that he is.

    1. We can thank George W. Bush for bringing out the best in Garrison. :-)

  4. Anon 1 above is right about the family. The stoic philosophers concludes that all virtues (the word actually means courage) came from family ties and the love of children. Trump cannot be beat in this category although America is failing. I don't know Mead but he hit some good points even if he hates the wrong guy. Euripides says a good man cannot hate another good man so Mead must be a bad one. Too bad.

  6. " it’s been clear since the financial crisis of 2008 that something is badly awry and that the economists, so dogmatic and opinionated and so bitterly divided into quarreling schools, aren’t sure how the system works anymore"

    Well, how about letting the free market work and keeping the IRS, EPA, and the rest of the alphabet soup from interfering with it?

    Usually that's the solution that works, but Mead wants to impress all his Lefty colleagues by how intellectual he sounds.
