Resentment defines politics today. We’ve received innumerable lessons in the sense of dispossession that characterizes the fabled white working class, courtesy of liberal and right-wing media alike. But can resentment be reclaimed? Who else has a right to be resentful? Can—and must—resentment be useful?
