This is somewhat reminiscent of when cosmopolitanism, bohemianism, androgyny, sexual/chemical experimentation, etc. were considered to be the prerogatives of aristocrats in opposition to the values of the conservative peasantry. It also fits with the recent study by Amory Gethin, Clara Martínez-Toledano, and Thomas Piketty indicating that the “left” in the present-day Western countries is a “Brahmin” left and not a “proletarian” left. Only what I have been saying for 20 years.
