The intellectual collapse of left and right

An article in the FT (firewall) arguing neither the GOP nor the Democrats have a coherent case.

Democrats and Republicans alike are failing to convince the American people that they have the answer to their country’s problems. Underneath, however, lies a deeper intellectual confusion.
