The Atlantic's nice work vs. Trump-apocalyptic and the general problem of apocalytpic among Dems

Just posted two things from The Atlantic-- on higher education (signaling vs. human capital) and an elegant solution to hazing at colleges. I've enjoyed my subscription/exposure to them so far-- very much. The first issue had a ton of TRUMP-APOCALYPTIC and there have been fragments of that since, but overall, really nice work.

More broadly, I heard Michael Medved comment that Dems are in trouble to the extent that they continue to see and/or sell the world in apocalyptic terms. This sounds correct to me. If you're going to be a false prophet, follow the environmentalists, the economy-is-burning libertarians, the more-rabid pre-millennialists, etc.-- and keep your predictions further into the future.
