Today we get to all live tuition free inside the head of one of the most prominent intellectuals on the left, Ben Burgis. Ben is a Jacobin columnist, an adjunct philosophy professor at Rutgers University, and the host of the YouTube show and podcast Give Them An Argument. He’s also the author of several books including Give Them an Argument: Logic for the Left, Canceling Comedians While the World Burns, and Christopher Hitchens: What He Got Right, How He Went Wrong, and Why it Matters. Ben joins Max in a wide ranging discussion from the presidential election and the fracture among liberals and leftists to socialist tendencies and worker cooperatives.
