A verbose and hackneyed defense of bourgeois democracy based on Rawls 
that obviously was published to ward off the possibility that Doug 
Henwood and Astra Taylor's defense of the Jacobin/DSA might lead to 
this: "Perhaps one thing that those American socialists who claim to put 
democracy first could do is persuade its editors to change the name of 
their journal. It conjures up the guillotine." I wouldn't worry too much 
about this as long as Vogue keeps scheduling their regular Alexandria 
Ocasio-Cortez photo shoots.
