Learning from Marcuse - Podcast #53

American conservatives rarely read or engage with leftist thought outside of the mass media. This is a weakness because if they did do so, they’d find that serious thinkers on the left are often very smart and have important insights about our world. This includes people often stigmatized as bogeymen (by people who have never read them) like the postmodernists or the Frankfurt School. This podcast talks briefly about a couple of insights from Herbert Marcuse’s book One Dimensional Man. Although an extremely difficult read, this 1950s work makes many observations about Western society that remain as relevant as ever and must be confronted by anyone seeking to change the system.
