Liberal columnist David Brooks published an opinion piece in the New York Times making the case for a major rethink of the way the left-wing views the rest of America.

Analyst Comment: There are two paths forward for the authoritarian left. The first path is to triple down and keep jamming new policies down the public’s throat as fast as possible. That approach backfired in a very dramatic way during the pandemic and cracks are appearing in the Biden’s admin’s latest attempt at implementing this strategy. The other attempt is to take a step back, claim moderation and push many of these pet projects through slower, incremental mechanisms. A key threat to the elite class is the populist takeover of the Republican party. RINOs are rapidly being replaced with populists, a trend that directly endangers the elite class as it means the party will no longer be a reliable co-conspirator for the dems.
