Given that a left/right/center populist/libertarian/anarchist/decentralist political realignment is obviously not going to be happening any time soon, the best we can probably hope for at present is for an ongoing push-pull between the “Left” (Brahmins and their useful idiots) and “Right” (merchants and their useful idiots) as pan-secessionist […]

What Hanson is describing here is fairly consistent with the way that a range of social scientists and political theorists have characterized class relations in the present era.
