Abramson on the alt-right and the alt-left

See his recent article here. I've been reading and appreciating Abramson on metamodernism for a while now. The kennilinguists will have fits trying to label him green given his critique of postmodernism.

He does though have a different definition of alt-left. I've tended to call alt-left those liberal paranoids who froth that ANYthing that comes from the intelligence community is automatically Deep State lies and manipulations.

I prefer collaborative commons as a description of the emerging paradigm because to associate the term 'left' with it has negative connotations implying that it is falsely equivalent with the right and therefore we need to find some middle ground with it. Especially alt-left, which seems to imply the sort of wackadoodle extremes of the alt-right.

The article criticizes clicktivism and encourages progressives to get out there and do something about it. My 'getting out there' is as rhetaphorical agent provocateur. Which, btw, I consider a liberational spiritual mission a la integral postmetaphysical spirituality.
