About this Episode

We speak with scholar Kyong-Min Son about his book The Eclipse of the Demos: The Cold War and the Crisis of Democracy before Neoliberalism. We cover some of the major themes of the book, but also discuss consumerism, populism, Carl Schmitt's legacy, and why democracy can't just be radical action from below, but needs to become a public institution.

You should buy Kyong-Min's book.
