Worth Reading.

David Brooks forecasts the coming epoch of American politics.  I do not care for his predictions; nonetheless, I fear he may be correct.

At the very least, Brooks reads the past thirty or so years of American politics with adriotness and clarity:

Moreover, the tea party movement has passion. Think back on the recent decades of American history — the way the hippies defined the 1960s; the feminists, the 1970s; the Christian conservatives, the 1980s. American history is often driven by passionate outsiders who force themselves into the center of American life.
