They explore the connections between these philosophies and Leftism, exploring both the contradictions between postmodernism and Marxism as well as the connection between postmodernism and post-left anarchism! Topics include: Liberation Theology, Sartre, Irony, Sincerity, Neoliberalism, Post-Postmodernism, Meta-Narratives, how social media shapes our psychology, and more!
