Not an ounce of data this. I would call it analysis, if I had the slightest idea what it meant, other than a call to further "strategic" studies and inaction. It shuns economics. It abandons class as a relationship to economics. It shuns the F word. It shuns Marxism, which is OK by me since that ism is no less confused than the half-baked liberal speculation offered in its place. Good liberalism is at least evidence and data based. Lecturing the "white working class" -- IMO, a fraudulent, racist concept from the git -- on their sins is a meaningless and futile tactic. Maybe that's not what Sam is saying. Maybe I need to go back to school to understand.
But until then..
This leads nowhere. AND -- it is NOT serious. Not a moment of self criticism: which every critic on the left, at least, to should include at the outset.
We have to do better
