Back in 1986 for an anniversary edition of NATIONAL REVIEW, Joseph Sobran coined the term “alienism”.
He defined it as alienation from the culture of the majority versus “nativism” which is the political tendency to favor the indigenous and established.
He said the party of the Left was opposed to the existing culture. Furthermore, that much of American liberalism was motivated by guilt and alienation from society and was ultimately self-destructive.
James Burnham termed Liberalism as the ideology of Western suicide.
