Too often the left fails to engage with conservative critics of modernity and this failure allows right-wing tropes and concepts to go unchallenged. For instance, if only the right will address the way social alienation creates a sense of meaninglessness and instability, then only the right will reach people who long for meaning and stability. Further, not answering the strongest arguments from our ideological opponents but merely denouncing them leaves us defenseless when our social authority wears out.
