    Second paragragh cited in op: "family breakdown, mass immigration, the war on assimilation, and the rise of virtual communities pretending to replace real ones."

    So he recognizes immigration as part of the problem.

    I saw that. That's what prompted my initial comment. As I recall, that wasn't always so. A change of mind perhaps. I'm not being cynical. It just struck me as out of character for the Goldberg that I remember.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Here he discusses how stances on immigration were reversed only back in the 90s, and has shifted since: https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/...litical-shift/

    I don't think he's a neocon, based on his writing about them.

    Anyway, what struck me was the resemblance in theme to Deneen's Why Liberalism Failed. One Catholic, one Jewish.

    It struck me too but what struck me was out of character it was for Jews.
