Political Virtuosity, à la carte?

In his angry critique of AfD leader Alexander Gauland, Roger Cohen yesterday accused "volkisch" German politicians of reacting "against globalization, against migration, against miscegenation, against the disappearance of borders and the blurring of genders, against the half-tones of political correctness, against Babel, against the stranger and the other, against the smug self-interested consensus of the urban, global elite." It's a sweeping indictment—and one that Cohen is happy to extend to Brexit and Trump supporters. A question arises. To be a virtuous citizen in the West today, must one express affection for all of the things the reactionaries hate, or are we still free to pick and choose, à la carte
