NextGen Marxism with Mike Gonzalez

2020 represented an inflection point for what some refer to as the Marxist “long march through the institutions.” However, this inflection point was not spontaneous. Rather, according to our Anchoring Truths Podcast guest Mike Gonzalez, Senior Fellow at the Heritage Foundation, it was evidence of what he and his co-author Katharine Cornell Gorka call NextGen Marxism, also the title of their new book from Encounter Books. We discuss how this NextGen Marxism arose, what it means for how the Left operates, what it portends for this coming summer’s Democratic National Convention, and any hopeful signs it may be abating.
