A Tectonic Demographic Shift Is Under Way; Can America Hold Together?

On the bright side, I guess this means that some progressives are admitting this is a big damn gamble. On the not-bright side, the author seems to have convinced himself that the only danger springs from conservative bigotry and petulance. On a different kind of not-bright side, he doesn't even consider the possibility that gambling with the very existence of the nation might be a really #$%&ing stupid thing to do. But that is, of course, one of the biggest kinds of rational blind spots of progressivism (and, to a slightly lesser extent, liberalism). If you recognize that a certain course of action could lead to disaster, then for the love of God, throttle back on it at least temporarily, at least until you have a better understanding of the risks. Don't just plunge on, dogmatically, full speed ahead. This really isn't rocket science.
