Hi and thanks! Could you say more? At least where I am, a few things - I 
don't hear the word 'populism' at all; as far as the left goes, as you 
know, HRC won the popular vote by over 3 million votes; it's a question of 
our miserable electoral college that skewed the election. I don't see the 
'niche market,' at least from Rhode Island - if anything, the governor 
(Raimondo) and Providence mayor (Elorza) are far left of anything the 
state has seen before, and people here are putting their careers, if not 
their lives, at risk for others.. So it may just be my mypoic vision from 
the smallest state, but I don't see a 'reactionary and moral left' either 
- much less a de-politicization. As far as that goes, the left (again at 
least from here) seems more united than before, and social media allows 
Virilian speed in response and forms of TAZ (temporary autonomous zones).

Thanks again!, Alan
