Assistant Village Idiot: Good News From the Left

The idiot speculating on what Euston Manifesto signers will call themselves,
Assistant Village Idiot: Good News From the Left I wonder what they will call themselves? 'Neo-liberals' has a nice symmetry in today's political landscape, though they might prefer something more distinctive. If they go the Neoliberal route, they will have about a 30% philosophical overlap with the neocons. Over time, that overlap might increase, and they'd all just be 'Neo's.' As it would be mostly superannuated Boomers who have grown cynical about many things, the name would be more than a little ironic. No problem. Irony has always been very hip with us.
