As you survey pop culture, the academy, and American corporations, which side has the upper hand? Which side is defining American discourse? Americaâ€™s most prominent culture-makers obsess over identity. They elevate prom dress choices to matters of national debate. And thatâ€™s why people who still possess a sense of reason, proportion, and manners (on both sides of the political aisle) need to push back. Reason canâ€™t cede the public square to rage. Sometimes a prom dress is just a prom dress. But Lamâ€™s tweet wasnâ€™t â€œjustâ€ a tweet. It was a symbol of the incoherent anger that is tearing this nation apart.
