Podcast Episode 85: Leftwing Culture War pt2: Sex, Love, and Liberals

The episode We cover the social justice issues that create various splits in the Left today. Looking at a socialist vision of Sex Work , the gender nonconforming and their conflict with gender parity rules. The 2nd half focuses on the Green party as a microcosm of the Left with TERF fighting, and liberals who play it safe Vs radical socialists. We wrap up with a piece challenging the idea that love and sex are separate from politics with a call for ‘relationship communism’.
