An atomized, racially fragmented, demoralized working class will always be prone to Trumpism.

New Politics actively seeks submission of online articles
We welcome the opportunity to be a site of left discussion and debate, and we are especially interested in running articles that engage important issues on the left that are in keeping with the broad democratic and socialism-from-below approach that is a proud tradition New Politics continues to embrace.
See Why We Publish for our general political perspective. Please send submissions to email@example.com.
