Default Unite the Right 2

The Washington Examiner, typically has a right wing bias, which makes today's paper unique and important for both those on the left and the right to read its editorial:

A recent survey suggested that those who hold alt-right views are far more likely to be unemployed, and to have not gone to college. College and a job aren’t merely about wealth, they’re also about connection — they are valuable institutions of civil society that connect people. If you dive deeper into these networks, you find that so many people drawn to extremism are drawn from the condition of alienation.

Desperation for community and identity makes people vulnerable to the entreaties of racist groups who say, “You belong with us.”

Most white Americans suffering from this alienation wouldn’t ever turn to white supremacy or the alt-right, but enough do that we should see this as a national problem.

A look at global academia:

CALL FOR PAPERS: ICCTP CONFERENCE “CRITICAL THEORIES IN A GLOBAL CONTEXT” UNIVERSITY OF BRIGHTON, JANUARY 23-25, 2019
The International Consortium of Critical Theory Programs invites 300-word abstracts for a conference, hosted jointly by the Centre for Applied Philosophy, Politics and Ethics at the University of Brighton, UK, and the Department of Politics at Boğaziçi University, Turkey. Please send abstracts to info.ictconsortium@berkeley.edu before September 10, 2018.

The conference has three aims:

(a) to reanimate the analytical and critical tools of the past in addressing the xenophobic, fascistic, racist, and sexist tendencies of the present;
(b) to engage in debate with critical theoretical scholars from every part of the globe;
(c) to address the inequalities intrinsic to the global political order, while identifying the places, spaces and practices which inspire democratic politics today.

The alt-left media was disappointed that mayhem and violence didn't erupt because the alt-left (anti) fascist's were kept at bay.
