Ep#108 What is the Left?

EWe take a look, a gander if you will, at the left of the political spectrum based off of a podcast John heard with Dan Carlin and Daniele Bolelli. They discussed the left and right divide and its history based in French politics. They then proposed that a section of society is attempting to place Nazism in the leftist sphere of influence. We then veer off and talk about the similarities between the Nazi party ideology and the current identity politics that has seeped into our social discourse, yet we generally disagree that Nazism is leftist.
