Ed Kilgore reviews the new mini-debate about whether the American constitutional order is in fact doomed (I’m skeptical) and offers his own take. My own take is that the structure of American government (presidential vs parliamentary systems) is relatively unimportant. I’m closer to Chait in thinking the driving issue is the rise of conservative absolutism, grounded in white identity politics, coming into its own in mid-90s and growing, more or less, ever since.
