Conservative political scientist Charles Murray’s 2012 book Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010 relates to some ideas we’ve been discussing in class, especially the cultural polarization of quote-unquote red staters and blue staters. Murray wrote a quiz he says shows how much people are living in an isolating bubble of privilege and comfort, unaware of the troubles and interests of “mainstream America.” Take the quiz; we’ll discuss in class.
