Dr. Adaner Usmani is Assistant Professor of Sociology and Social Studies at Harvard University.
In this episode, we focus on topics like mass incarceration, discrimination against black Americans and the root causes of their subordination, modern democracies and their weaknesses, creating a Left that does not deny human nature, and the viability of communism in current political systems. We discuss the causes and motivations behind mass incarceration in the US. We talk about the contentious issue of high crime rates in black communities, and the causes behind them. We address the narrative of the destruction of the nuclear family and a culture that go against personal responsibility, coming from the conservatives. We talk about praise and blame. We discuss modern democracies, the major threats to democracy, the democracies that distribute power among their citizens, and the ones that withhold it. And we also discuss political struggle and communism. And, finally, we talk about the need to include biology in sociological analyses, and about a potential biologically-informed Left.
