Thank you, but I didn’t say the era of social justice had “ended”; I said (to rephrase) that a government is only afforded the luxury of addressing those issues when people are working and eating. When a substantial number of people are NOT working or eating, good governance dictates that they prioritize those problems over others.

As a concept, it has nothing to do with who has the social capital and who lacks it.

You have politely sidestepped any concern with the genuine panic others feel at the prospect of a Trump presidency.

I am always concerned about genuine panic. However, panic that’s been induced by media malpractice and social media propaganda……not so much. I have seen editing of Trump videos on social media that were positively criminal in what they did to his actual views and statements. I have no way of gauging how much “panic” is actually due to his actual positions and how much is caused by leftist (not liberal) agitprop, and neither do you; there is an “alt-left” out there which is every bit as toxic as the alt-right, it seems.

Nor do either of us know what policies (which are really what matter, after all) will come out of all this; my guess is that the “panic” will turn out to be a tempest in a teapot; that’s an educated guess based on (a) Trump’s written positions vs his verbalized ones, (b) the US rule of law protecting minorities, which he cannot circumvent; and © the fact that any serious attempt to circumvent rights will be met with opposition from all the Democrats and, in my view, most of the Republicans.

BTW, if I thought Trump was actually a “white nationalist”, I’d toss him under the bus with everyone else. That sort of hypercharged label has no place here.
