… is from page 59 of the manuscript of Deirdre McCloskey ‘s forthcoming volume, The Treasured Bourgeoisie:
Rhetoric matters just as much in the assaults on economic or political liberty as it does in their defense. The aristocracy or the country club favors a nationalist rhetoric nurturing military power, and a version of neo-aristocracy, in the name of King and Country. For a moderate showing of such tendencies in the United States see any Republican Party national convention. The progressive Christians or the herd of independent minds favors a socialist rhetoric nurturing the leading members of the Party and selected trade unions, in the name of the wretched of the earth. For a moderate showing of such tendencies in the United States see any Democratic Party convention.
