Author’s Note: This piece is offered for discussion. It was written for the 2012 US Presidential election. Many facts have changed for the better since then. Indeed, Right-wing populism is on rise. But the only edit I would make is to replace the phrase “(1) moral universalism and (2) anti-white racism” with “the idea that whites taking our own side in ethnic conflicts is simply immoral.”
