On this episode of The Hillsdale College Online Courses Podcast, Jeremiah and Juan introduce the course "The American Left: From Liberalism to Despotism".

American politics have drastically transformed over the last few decades as a ruling elite has emerged that, despite being from different parties, largely shares radical ideologies centered around identity politics. The change is not simply the natural conclusion of progressivism, but rather a series of radical movements that have provided new ideas and shifted the Left from the liberalism of Franklin Roosevelt to the Great Awokening of Barack Obama’s second term.

Progressive ideas rejected the Founding belief that the purpose of government was to protect natural rights. This has opened the way for a new understanding of politics that seeks power to redefine nature itself.
