This month we will discuss the essay The Treason of Intellectual Radicalism and the Collapse of Leftist Politics by Gregory Smulewicz-Zucker and Michael J. Thompson as well as this interview with the authors by The Hampton Institute.
We would like to open our discussion, with a brief introductory on the main themes. Each participant should read the paper (from Logos) in advance, and if possible, let Fred know which themes you want to focus on. One theme, for instance, is their critique of post-modernism. Another is the current lack of strategic perspectives. We should devote perhaps one hour of our two to this paper, doing it at the beginning.
