But, maybe that is changing? The Brexit election in England last year was the first where voters were either nationalists or globalists. To a large extent, our own presidential election last year divided us the same way. The French election today will shed more light on this. ( La Pen represents the nationalists and is a direct threat to the future of the euro and possibly the eurozone.)
It is not news that “politics makes for strange bedfellows,” but I find myself agreeing with a strange new group and disagreeing with an equally strange group. To be permanent, political parties must support the realignment, and I have trouble imagining the Republican faithful giving up on regulatory relief and Democrats giving up on fairness. Of course, it is not a simple matter of giving up on existing goals but is instead a matter of re-prioritizing goals.
I’m not sure who I am currently dancing with . . . ?
Are you a nationalist or a globalist?
