Charles Murray: Trump’s America
If you are dismayed by Trumpism, don’t kid yourself that it will fade away if Donald Trump fails to win the Republican nomination. Trumpism is an expression of the legitimate anger that many Americans feel about the course that the country has taken, and its appearance was predictable. It is the endgame of a process that has been going on for a half-century: America’s divestment of its historic national identity.
As they say, read the whole thing.
I will not vote for Donald Trump in the primary. If he wins the nomination, I’m not sure how I’ll vote in the general election. However, most of the criticism of him and his voters is coming from people who have embraced and encouraged the ideas and policies responsible for his popularity, the ideas and policies that have weakened and divided our nation. If they want to stop him, they should clean up their own act first.
