01/11/2017: Bauerlein on Trump’s Election

[Mark Bauerlein] said he understood that many people, including many students at Emory, had experienced Trump’s victory as a violation—an “extraordinary desecration” of the progressive temple. But he was also suspicious of his own urge to glory in that desecration. His hope, however far-fetched, was that Trump, by demolishing traditional Party ideologies, might somehow help people move beyond hardened partisan positions.

– Mark Bauerlein, as quoted in The New Yorker, Jan. 09, 2017
