A Tragedy of Manners | The Baffler

A Tragedy of Manners; Angela Nagle; In The Baffler; WHEN?
Teaser: Trump and the new age of anti-PC transgression

tl;dr → Manners are a contested space by which actions valorize; they are a tussle among the hegemonic ideologues. The author problematizes the domain and limns the transgressive dialogue towards a synthesis which ultimately resulting in the thesis of the work while at the same time  preserving the original order, thus standing in opposition to itself with both metaphoric as well as rhetorical stances. The leded is buried.

<quote>The problem in our current, unacknowledged controversy over manners is that while both sides seem to implicitly accept this premise, they have directly opposing views of what our system of manners should be doing and what values it should be normalizing.</quote>
