From technocracy to neoliberalism and libertarianism, from methodological to ideological individualism, and the dismissal of lived individual life, the primacy of generalization, of measuring to the mean, and then, finally, the rediscovery of experience, through the "artisanal" and "bespoke"; the snobbish contempt for mere craft becoming a snobbish celebration of it, and the new intellectuals of the new upper west side, discover the social, as a concept
"We Live in a Society Organization is the entire question"
I've said it all before. My arguments haven't changed since the 80s. The liberals of 1992 who became the liberals of 2002 now are the socialists of 2020. And they still don't know what it means to be social.
