Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court will radicalize the Democratic Party

Over the past several decades, partisan wars have unceasingly escalated, even when the nation has been led by presidents who ran vowing to be uniters. The federal government and its courts exert vast central power over states and individuals, even as stark regional differences have become more pronounced and entrenched. From this vantage point in history, it’s hard to see how this cycle stops, or to imagine where the nation ends up if it does not.

Nothing lasts forever even though it might seem that way. Change always comes and usually it is cataclysmic. The democrat party is no exception.

Ilys Somin writes "Judge Kavanaugh was a respected pillar of the legal establishment, held in high regard by many liberal legal elites". When did Americans start to misuse "elite" to mean an individual member of an elite? Why did they do so? (Like many Europeans I might assume that it was because their secondary schools are lousy, but would that be too lazy?)
