Podcast Ep83: Left Wing Culture War: Old Scars w Micheal Walsh

I welcome back the Homegrown Socialist as we take a step back form the impending crash for a discussion of historical splits in the left and their results. From taking Orwell to task for helping give communism a bad name, to the tension between revolutionary visions large and small. We also take on the question of a Left wing patriotism for what comes after smashing statues. What we don’t get to is actually solving sectarianism; something no one seems to have a good answer for.
Part 2 of this topic will be about Trans haters and class reducers
