Conservative cabal endangers America

“Too few people inside and outside America comprehend the ambition of the American conservative project and its ideological hostility — both internally to any conception of an American social contract undergirding social mobility and opportunity and externally to any constraint on the exercise of preemptive autonomous American power. Moreover, the conservative coalition is deeply rooted and very powerful. It is a dangerous challenge both to the well-being of most ordinary American citizens at home and to the fragile processes that legitimize globalization abroad.” Will Hutton
