The Post-Political Condition
Guest: Gilad Atzmon
Gilad Atzmon’s talk, The Post Political Condition: Brexit, Trump and the Rest of Us, is a searing indictment of the new left’s embrace of identity politics and political correctness. He writes that the freedom to think openly is now within the domain of nostalgia. Our Western Liberal ‘utopia’ has turned into an Orwellian catastrophe and we the people, are left bewildered and impoverished.
His new book, Being In Time – A Post-Political Manifesto, is a courageous attempt to grasp the intellectual developments that led toward the current dystopia. It identifies the ideologies that planted identity politics and the tyranny of correctness in our midst. Gilad Atzmon is a jazz musician and composer, a philosopher and an author. He is the author of The Wandering Who? – A Study of Jewish Identity Politics.
