Against the Web: A Cosmopolitan Answer to the New Right w/ Michael Brooks

April 21, 2020

On this edition of Parallax Views, Michael Brooks of The Majority Report, The Michael Brooks Show, and Weekends w/ Ana Kasparian and Michael Brooks joins us once again to discuss his brand new book Against the Web: A Cosmopolitan Answer to the New Right. In Against the Web, Michael critiques the "Intellectual Dark Web" that gained notoriety a few years ago through figures like Jordan Peterson, Sam Harris, and Ben Shapiro. Although some would argue the IDW's influence has waned, Michael nonetheless provides good answers for how the Left can build movements that challenge the American right. After all, this won't be the IDW won't be the last iteration of right-wing thought in American social life. In addition to discussing Against the Web, Michael, J.G., and Casey also discuss Michael's takes on current matters like the woke vs economic reductionism debate, the end of the Bernie moment, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. All that and more on this edition of Parallax Views.
