On this episode of The Hillsdale College Online Courses Podcast, Jeremiah and Juan discuss the thought of Herbert Marcuse Hillsdale before introducing Hillsdale College politics professor Kevin Slack. American politics have drastically transformed over the last few decades as a ruling elite has emerged that, despite being from different parties, largely shares radical ideologies centered around identity politics. The change is not simply the natural conclusion of progressivism, but rather a series of radical movements that have provided new ideas and shifted the Left from the liberalism of Franklin Roosevelt to the Great Awokening of Barack Obama’s second term.  Angered by the liberals’ views towards marginalized groups, the Student New Left advocated the overthrow of “the system” on college campuses in the 1960s. Universities became a central place where radical ideas were formed and spread. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
