Ayn Rand’s Critique of the Left

Onkar Ghate, Elan Journo

Presented at: New Ideal Live

Date: Dec 16, 2020

“Woke” activists and “Democratic Socialists” are expected to pressure the incoming Biden administration to move further “Left.” But what, if anything, does the “Left” stand for philosophically? In its claims, goals and means, how does it relate to the crusading socialism and communism in the 20th Century?  

In this episode, Ghate and Journo discuss aspects of Ayn Rand’s profound critique of the “Left” and its outgrowths, such as environmentalism, tribalism, and nihilism, which have since become mainstream.
