The poignant warnings from Rorty who passed a decade ago conveyed by Vox Media’s Sean Illing.

This piece draws interesting contrasts and makes you really think about the drift of modern liberalism and progressiveness. Well worth a read whether you agree or disagree (once upon a time liberals sought different viewpoints and explanations to come to a judgement – the left needs to get back to that way of thinking).
