The End of Trump with Andrew Sullivan Ep.18
Play • 1 hr 36 min

Coleman’s latest episode features Andrew Sullivan, a British born American writer and blogger. Andrew is a political commentator, a former editor at the New Republic, and the author or editor of six books. He also started a very famous political blog called the Daily Dish in 2000 and eventually moved that blog to Time Magazine, The Atlantic, The Daily Beast, and is now running an independent subscription-based format on Substack.

This episode was recorded last Thursday, right after the election, and before it was completely certain that Trump had lost. During this episode, they look at Trump’s single-term presidency in retrospect and evaluate which fears about him proved true and which proved false. They talk about the lack of a Biden landslide, and what that means for the long term prospects of Trumpism — even in the absence of Trump himself. They talk about the problem of elite bubbles misunderstanding the rest of the nation, the relationship between Trump and the far left, and much more.

Should the U.S. Government Adopt an Industrial Policy? A Soho Forum Debate
Oren Cass, who is the former domestic policy director for Mitt Romney's presidential campaign and the founder and executive director of the think tank American Compass, believes that the U.S. government should intervene more aggressively in the manufacturing industry. Cass participated in a recent Soho Forum virtual debate, held on January 13, 2021, arguing in favor of the proposition: "To promote prosperity among all income groups, the U.S. government should adopt an industrial policy." Arguing against Cass: Scott Lincicome, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute. He says that, in the real world, government interference has only hurt manufacturing. The problem with the economic nationalism favored by Cass is that it insulates companies from the discipline of profit and loss. In a free market, businesses learn from their mistakes. When the government is involved, they react by growing bigger as a way to cover for their failures. It was an Oxford-style debate, and Lincicome prevailed by convincing 14.56 percent of the audience to switch to his side. The Soho Forum, sponsored by Reason Foundation, is a monthly debate series typically held at the SubCulture Theater in Manhattan's East Village, but which has gone remote during the pandemic. Narrated by Nick Gillespie. Edited by Regan Taylor, John Osterhoudt, and Ian Keyser. Photo: Andy Star/Envato Elements.

Andy Ngo Way Should Ben Shapiro Be Deplatformed
After Jesse addresses the totally baseless rumor that he went to Yale Law School, the best law school in the country, where (in this false scenario) he got very good grades, the hosts talk a bit more about online content moderation and then discuss two recent stories about controversial right-wing media figures: the backfired attempt to deplatform Andy Ngo's book, and the widespread outrage among Politico employees that Ben Shapiro was allowed to author an edition of the Playbook newsletter.

Antonio Gramsci, Cultural Marxism, Wokeness, and Leninism 4.0
The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 16 If you want to understand the present moment, especially how similar Wokeness seems to Mao's Cultural Revolution, you have to understand the Italian communist Antonio Gramsci. Gramsci wrote a series of essays and books while imprisoned by the Italian fascists in the 1920s and 1930s that are referred to as his Prison Notebooks. These are the birthplace of Cultural Marxism, which James Lindsay argues has evolved into "Identity Marxism" since. Once you understand Gramsci, you can easily understand what is going on with our society at present and understand more clearly than ever why it must be resisted. Though he didn't coin the term, the idea fellow communist Rudi Dutschke would name "the long march through the institutions" in 1967 is ultimately Gramsci's roadmap to getting communism to take hold in the West. Gramsci identifies that the "cultural hegemony" of Western cultures prevented communism from having any chance of taking root, so he recommended a strategy that seeks to tear apart and capture major cultural institutions, including religion, family, education, media, and law. Mao understood this clearly and used it to devastating effect. The same thing is happening throughout the West today. Join James Lindsay as he explains the thought and relevance of Antonio Gramsci in today's Woke movement, which he aptly brands "Leninism 4.0."
