What the Reagan Revolution Was About

At its core, it was about making selfishness cool.

The anti-intellectualism, hostility to Blacks, brutalization of unions, and slashing of taxes for the .1 % all emanate from this core value.


On another thought, of course the Reagan Revolution was about rolling back working class resistance; the promotion of selfishness as a virtue is part and parcel with the political ideology.
