Freddie Deboer: The Nihilism of the Left and the Optimism that Must Replace It
Freddie Deboer is a writer on substack and a contributor to many publications. He offers a unique perspective, coming from the economic left while seeing through a range of strategic and policy failures. We discuss progressive organizations, doomerism, the politics of recognition, state capacity, patronage systems, civil rights law, housing, monarchy, mental illness, distrust of institutions, and the relationship between the Bernie left and the media.
