Good point, Bernie Sanders, Liz Warren, and Andrew Yang are already doing that by refusing to talk about cultural issues.

Culturism has been around for a long-time, but you’re right the 1960s New Left and 1970s New Right created the present version. Bizarrely, the American Right has adopted most of the methods of the New Left because it serves their economic interests.
