Country Club Voters

Republicans used to be the party of the country clubs while the Democrats were the party of the working people. This all changed years ago but many people still haven’t noticed. Jennifer Egan, for example, hilariously hasn’t realized that country club snobs now vote for Elizabeth Warren and buy “The Anti-racist Baby” for their $10,000 coffee tables. (I have seen such a table with my own eyes, so this isn’t a metaphor of any kind but literal fact).

This is the reason why Democrats are so pushy with the “anti-racist” stuff. The only working people who still vote for them are black. And the only way to hold on to them is to keep telling them that Republicans are desperate to bring back slavery.

    Я не подозревал, что моя повесть “Насу”, написанная во второй половине 2021 года и опубликованная за два месяца до начала нападения России на мою страну, во многих своих чертах окажется пророческой. Возможно, причиной этому стало то ментальное напряжение, которое в последние несколько лет висело в воздухе, а также те наметившиеся тенденции в политических событиях, которые, не доходя до сознания, выродились в рассуждения, занявшие большую часть последней главы повести (и оказавшиеся неожиданными для меня самого). Я не собирался писать об этих вещах, когда задумывал “Насу”, главная идея произведения была (и остается) совсем другой. Тем не менее, это вышло само собой.

    Here is the first out of 9 chapters after a short introduction:
