David Brooks on the end of a GOP era
David Brooks, mind you, is glad it's the end of the Reagan era. He's not happy that it took Trump to destroy it it, but it's time to reorganize around different principles. It will require that the GOP give up the old ways of Adam Smith's utilitarian individualism and be open to Durkheim's collective social relations based on compassion and love. Fucking wow, this is a monumental moment of realization for a Republican.
