Episode 9 -Millennials, Snarxism, and the Pursuit of a Socialist Future with Maximillian Alvarez
6 days ago
Historian and literary scholar Maximillian Alvarez discusses his open letter to Millennials published in The Baffler entitled "The Snarxist Temptation." Among other things, the gang discusses how our generation's embrace of ironic forms is preventing us from achieving our revolutionary potential, the shortcomings of the "Cult of Wokeness," leftist self-promotion, group policing, and (most importantly) the role Millennials must play in bridging identity politics and any hope of a collectivist future. They also consider which past models today's activists can use to organize effectively and the stunning effectiveness of Black Lives Matter.
