If you’re supporting the decimation of good working-class jobs you can’t make a very good claim of being progressive. […] Over the last several years I’ve heard several young hipsters tell my they’re socially-liberal and economic-conservatives, a popular trend in American politics. Well, I hate to break it to you buddy; but its economics and the role of the state which defines politics. If you’re an economic conservative despite how ironic and sarcastic you may be or how tight your jeans are you my friend are a conservative.
