In this final episode of the first season of Impolitic, Sean and Paul discuss the rent-seeking aspects of net neutrality, why socialists are relatively disengaged with the issue, and the future of social media. Sponsored by the testicular fortitude of John “Goat Gland” Brinkley.
Malcolm Gladwell sells books with capitalist gusto, but how would he fare as part of a socialist political bloc? Sean and Paul consider whether, if the Popular Front were revived, Gladwell would be a comrade (along with co-belligerent Matthew Yglesias). Also, Paul continues his rant on Trump’s ill-considered tweets about broadcasting.
