Ep. 16 - Cathy Young on the Right and the Left

December 11, 2019

Rob Tracinski talks with Cathy Young, writer at Quillette, The Bulwark, and elsewhere, about our plight stuck between illiberal strands of both the right and the left. The conversation includes: Political Correctness and Soviet art and literature, how the nationalist right reminds her of the Soviet Union, why the Tea Party movement failed, the symbiosis of far-left and far-right radicals, the pitfalls of the Intellectual Dark Web, what will cause the "progressive" left to implode, and the spelling skills requires to become an "elite."
