Piloted by its Oxford-educated host Spencer Klavan, “Young Heretics” explores the concepts of truth, beauty, and everything that makes Western culture great in the face of an increasingly hostile academia, media, and culture through which liberals guard the great works of the West behind lock and key to “protect” the next generation from the supposed racism, sexism, and homophobia of those that came before. "Young Heretics," in direct contrast to this, provides an open forum for exploring, u ...

Marxism is having a moment; higher workloads, stagnating wages, rising costs of living, a new economic crisis every few years, a warming climate and now almost two years of a worldwide pandemic have all led to a number of people across the world, especially younger people, to self-identify with ideas once thought to be in the dustbin of history.
