Fred Siegel’s The Revolt Against the Masses

“What unites the top and bottom of the Obama [read that: Democrat] coalition is an apparent disdain for the copybook maxims of faith, family, and hard work. Upper-middle-class liberals often live by those very maims, but they refuse to preach what they practice. To be straightforward about how they live would reveal well-to-do liberals as far more conventional than their pretensions would allow.” 

“With the election of 2012, America has taken a giant step closer to the European model the original liberals of 1919 so ardently admired. But European social democracy, like blue-state America, is imperilled by its sheer costs. “Europe got the American president it wanted the one who would present no threat to its own delusions,” explained the British writer Janet Daley in November 2102. “The United States is now officially one of us:  an Old World country complete with class hatred, ethnic Balkanization, bourgeois guilt, and a paternalist ruling elite. And it is locked into the same death spiral of high public spending and self-defeating wealth redistribution we are.” The Revolt Against the Masses, copyright © 2013 by Fred Siegel, Encounter Books, Page 203.
