This essay by Christopher Lasch was released in 1986 on the Tikkun magazine, but, seeing what is happening today in USA, we consider it is very useful to read or reread it today.
"Why the Left Has No future", by Christopher Lasch, Tikkun 1986
Unable to explain the persistence of religion, pro family attitudes, and an ethic of personal accountability except as an expression of false con-sciousness . . . the Left finds itself without a following.
People still cherish the stability of long-term marital and intergenerational commitments, . . . but find little suppoflor them in a capi-talist economy or in the prevailing ideology of individual rights.
Orwellian sloganeering about “alter-native lifestyles” and the “new diver-sity of family types” serves to disguise marital breakup as an exhilarating new form of freedom.
