I return with a Dive into a new essay from an historian commenting on what he calls the ‘Local Genty’ of America. Meaning the various millionaires who factor into a better class analysis. I then cover an interview with him to expand on his points and positions. In the 2nd Half I cover a conservative reaction and a moderate’s ideas which he rely on, muddling through the ideas of the professional class and how current politics can be mapped, perhaps incorrectly.
