Rarely has a GOP presidential primary offered such vista of folly, arrogance, ignorance, and outright political self-destruction. The party’s tether to big business is more openly transparent than ever, yet the year-long parade of postures carries on. What are the deeper roots of this nauseating season of political theater?
In a conversation moderated by journalist Christian Parenti, political scientist Corey Robin will speak with leftist economist (and former conservative) Doug Henwood about the history of reactionary theory, the creation of the right wing, and the role of the ruling class in fostering the conservative movement.
