While there are parts I differ with, this article* by Charles Murray gets a lot right, especially with regard to the condescension of the new elite class toward working class whites. That’s why his antagonism toward Trump is so puzzling. While Murray has not been snarky about it, unlike much of the elite class he discusses, his objections to Trump have largely consisted, from what I have seen, to what I call sophistication signaling. In the face of the sea change in national character that he describes, such objections strike me as deck chairs on the Titanic.
