Bill Kristol has never been right about anything in his entire career. As long as you allow shitheads like Bill Kristol to waste your time, you will never have a clue about anything. Outside of some of the automation stuff, everything of realistic import Murray says - which isn't much - is rehashed lefty and liberal commonplaces from fifty, a hundred years ago. So now it's news? The rest of it - the bulk of it - is idiotic hippy punching, and some of the most thoughtless bs about economics and "status" you will ever hear. The poor, picked on lower class white male betrayed by - guess who - the Democrats. They dissed, condescended, and that's how everything went wrong. Yah, you betcha Charles. And the problem is not only what he says. It's what he leaves out. Listen to him and the entire corporate class, Republican Party, and rightwing media - that entire category of person and organization and everything it did between 1965 and 2015 - never happened. It simply isn't there, in this video. No tax cuts for the rich, no growing income inequality, no Crash, no bad wars (except Vietnam, which is mentioned because all the veterans got spit on when they wore their uniforms and for no other reason), no union-busting, none of it. The bad stuff the liberals clearly didn't do - such as import millions of low wage illegals to drive down wages, or trash the functioning of Congress - just sort of happened. Like the weather. So when did the country go wrong, according to this genius? 1937, when the Supreme Court rewrote the Constitution to allow the New Deal. And that's what kills his basic income idea - nothing in there about taxing rich people. Nothing about what happened to Congress or the news media. Nothing in there about the actual political environment, how any of this good stuff (that liberals and lefties have been arguing for fifty years) is going to happen. This guy loved the Tea Party? (never existed) He hadn't a clue about Trump's appeal? (the Republican voting base since 1980) He thinks Trump's rise was a hostile takeover of the Republican Party? By 63 million voters, the entire voting base of the Republican Party, doing exactly what they did when they voted for Reagan and W. The funniest part was when he and Bloody Bill commiserated with each other over the Very Bad Thing that had suddenly happened to the Republican Party in 2016 - and how there wasn't a place for guys like them in it now. Meaning there was, up until 2016. Which is all you need to know about Charles Murray. Amnesiac fool, is what he is.
