“On the barricades” — s02e45
Ben Burgis is widely known for his best-selling book “Give them an argument. Logic for the Left”. He is also a contributor to the Jacobin magazine and a very nuanced intellectual. This year he published a book with a very catchy title, “Canceling Comedians While the World Burns. A Critique of the Contemporary Left.” Maria Cernat wrote a review for his book, and now they meet to analyze further why the Left is constantly caught in what Burgis calls “pathologies of the powerless”.
