    ‘The Market Can’t Solve A Massacre’ was powerful and compelling. For all of neo-liberalism’s sins as committed by the Democrats in the past few decades, though, I can’t help but think the GOP’s proto-nationalism, counterfactual denials of science and reason, and ethnocentric circling of the white wagons is even worse. The two parties are not alike, no matter what the Left says.
