The un-American dream of the government class

The fate of the American Dream, we are to understand, now depends entirely on the ability of government workers to get unionized and stay that way. I don’t throw around the word ‘unamerican’ casually. But what we have here is exactly what I predicted and feared — a successful attempt to mobilize the grassroots left around a category mistake. Liberals are now in a fateful position perhaps best described by Alan Wolfe, a man of the left whose Future of Liberalism is more relevant today than it was when it hit shelves two years ago.
