The Conservative crack-up

Jason Wilson (The Guardian 1.4.16) discusses a recent book by political scientist George Hawley, whose book Right-Wing Critics of American Conservatism was published last month (but written in 2014), saw 2016’s political turmoil coming. Wilson concludes: 

‘There are good reasons for thinking that, in Australia as in the US, the time has passed in which the disreputable forms of conservatism could simply be managed by the right.

‘Australia may not yet have a Trump, but the ingredients for a “conservative crack-up” of our own are all here.’
