In this episode of Radio Rothbard, Ryan McMaken and Tho Bishop consider progressivism as a form of modern colonialism. The response to the prospects of the Supreme Court overturning Roe vs. Wade has highlighted the degree to which the American left—particularly those that reside in major blue cities—can’t live with the concept of other areas of the country not abiding by what they see as moral absolutes. Ryan and Tho look at how this tension is shaping the modern political landscape, and they discuss the history of this impulse towards “liberal” centralization.
