pretty good

"For many years, those on the conservative right in the United States have invoked a nostalgia for the 1950s, and an America that never was, but has to be presumed to have existed to rationalize their sense of loss and abandonment, their fear of change, their bitter resentments and lingering contempt for the social movements of the 1960s, a time of new aspirations for women, gays, and people of color. In truth, at least in economic terms, the country of the 1950s resembled Denmark as much as the America of today. Marginal tax rates for the wealthy were 90 percent. The salaries of CEOs were, on average, just 20 times that of their mid-management employees."

From The American Conservative

Recieved this from a rural bank Ag Loan Officer. Raised solid red GOPer and voter. A bit culturally liberal, but not so much to have him been ostracized by the family and community. But  a solid Reaganite.

Extra interesting is his linking old libertarian icon Freddy Hayek to neoliberalism

Re: From The American Conservative

Can certainly go both ways but I doubt that in regards to liberal wokesters or such who also happen to be nucking futs, I doubt he’d sympathetically regard them as just victims of their powerlessness.
