“On the barricades” — s02e50
Maria Cernat continues the debate with Pat Byrne asking how, if possible, class solidarity can be built in a highly patriarchal society. One of the most challenging things the Left has to deal with is the conservatism of the working class. To solve the problem of class struggle, you have to be appealing to the masses of workers. How can you do that if they are very conservative? How do we rebuild the connection to the working class? How do we reconnect the progressive intellectuals to the laborers, especially after the Cia invested a lot in divorcing the Left and the working class? How do we rebuild the relationship with the working class?
