Our Era of Good Feelings

People sometimes forget that the 19th century’s Era of Good Feelings ended pretty badly as fundamental issues of great importance overtook the Monroe good will tour and his approach to policy and politics. We have our own Era of Good Feelings today, as the academy, the government, and the media all reinforce each other and the youngsters swoon. In such a world, people who can do arithmetic, reason logically, and take serious matters seriously, such as VDH, are heteronormative buffoons unaware that they are merely parroting the tenets of white male privilege. We’re not saying the today’s EOGF will end well, but end it will.
