Do "societies" even become "regimes"? This is the usual "That person in the White House is taking away my freedoms!" yada except articulated in larger (& accordingly vaguer) words. Still waiting for anything resembling fact behind any of these claims of impinged freedom.
Also, per O.C. Reg staff artist Chris Morris we are all hipsters or gamers or ... um ... something in B.O.'s Matrix, able only to live in a virtual reality simulacrum of the American Dream. The American Dream. Only one is allowed, if you forgot: Houses, homemakers, cars, dogs, white picket fences, babies & other property to be fetishized by white guys.
Also helpful to the cause? Uncited "surveys", & the trending (?) of "white millennials". Surprised he doesn't capitalize "white" as his nationalist brethren do? Me too.
We also wonder if Mr. Kotkin has ever invested any of the money he scams from things like the Houston-based Center for Opportunity Urbanism (www.opportunityurbanism.org) in development or real property, or if he's neither a landlord nor Trump-like Master of the Development Universe but merely a mouthpiece for the rent-seekers.
