Abstract

After Trump's win, we might be called beyond the narrow tactical arguments that come after defeat, however necessary they are—the ways Democrats can do better with this or that religious "demographic" in the next election—and to offer a moral and spiritual response demanded by crisis. That crisis is shaped by the two principal elements of Trumpism-in-practice, white nationalism and a brutal economic vision designed to crush the most marginalized. Together they constitute a massive push to dehumanize the poor, immigrants, the sick, the "losers" of the present age. While this certainly has a policy dimension, this crisis must also be met with an alter-native moral and spiritual vision—the hope of a better way to live together.
