While reading your article, the following phrase came to mind: social class essentialism.

That phrase sums up what I’ve read about Kavanaugh and the people who support him, so far.

Slate did a really nice article on that subject years ago, which you can find here: https://amp.slate.com/articles/health_and_science/science/2014/01/social_darwinism_and_class_essentialism_the_rich_think_they_are_superior.html

I enjoyed your article

Thank you for putting it here.
