    As opposed to classical liberalism which focused on people as a whole, think utilitarianism, the new democratic party focuses on groups which leads them to their war on this or war on that, it's extremely divisive (you're with us or against us) and its the reason they are losing so much.
    That is the right's assessment on liberalism.

    It would be fun to have formal debates around here. Recruit debate teams. Recruit a jury. Set a post limit in an assigned thread. The jury votes and gives reasons for their vote based on the best arguments.

    I know. I know. Just more fantasy thinking.

    His point is that on the issues most Americans agree with lib/progressive causes. Hence the Bernie revolution.
