[O]ur present nervous breakdown is happening in (to borrow the title of Yuval Levin’s excellent new book) “a fractured republic — a society where elites are widely loathed, where the political parties are polarized and one of them is so hollow that a rank demagogue could seize it, where diversity and distrust have risen together, where wage growth has been disappointing, where families are fragmented
