Shelby Steele: Liberalism Became The New Racism

Modern liberalism is an idea claiming that America is evil. Therefore, according to liberal ideologues, it is virtuous to distrust all American authority. If someone doesn’t get on board with that idea, then they too are evil. Steele sees modern liberalism taking place in Chicago, a city that had over 4,000 people shot last year. The mayor chooses not to tackle the root problems of the violence, but, instead, declares Chicago a sanctuary city. Dan and Kristen discuss Shelby Steele’s explanation of modern liberalism and its two effects: bad faith and the loss of moral authority.
