Found this analysis very interesting, although I don’t agree with all of it (e.g. conflating many different types of moderates as a singular “the moderate”, or how quickly it dismisses all sections of the Left that don’t participate in the Democratic Party – really it should’ve been called “The Three Factions of the American Democratic Party”). I thought its critique of the so-called “liberal left” and critical race theory was particularly astute.
