Richard Rorty’s “Achieving Our Country”, 20 Years Later

Conor Friedersdorf has a piece on the late, pomo, leftist philosopher Richard Rorty ‘anticipated’ the rise of Trump. It’s a variation of the emergent theme that the Left, in deifying the concerns of identity politics against all else, are ignoring good old fashioned socialist economics concerns, and that the stifling effect of the former on the white working class will someday erupt into Der Trumpenfuhrer.

Many moons ago, I was in the cult of Rorty, until I was ‘woke’ by a Logic 101 course and Popper’s notion of falsifiability.
