Cultural Revolutions and Farcical Insurrections w/ C. Derick Varn Reply

Listen here.

On this edition of Parallax Views, C. Derick Varn of Zero Books makes his triumphant return to the program by providing a history lesson on the idea that “politics is downstream from culture” from the idea of cultural hegemony by the Italian Communist thinker Antonio Gramsci to its usage today. In addition, we delve into the storming of the Capitol by Trump supporters last week and attempt to tie together all the threads that lead us back to the “politics is downstream from culture” end of our conversation. Needless to say, this is an in-depth discussion that’s a tour-de-force of thoughtful historical information, political conversation, and current events that you won’t want to miss.
