This episode we dive into the criticism surrounding Red Scare and their recent profile in The Cut.  Mostly we discuss the ideology shaped by Camille Paglia, an individualist feminist who aligns herself with the alt-right favorite’s dad Jordan Peterson. We try to appeal for lefty media unity, and find some queer relief from the writings of Mary Beard, Ursula K Le Guin, and admitted normie Peter Frase.

We’ve decided to start reading art manifestos in full and providing light commentary. First up, of course, is 1938’s Towards a Free Revolutionary Art ghostwritten by Leon Trotsky, signed by Diego Rivera and André Breton. Trotsky was one of the leaders of the Russian revolution, he was famously forced to flee to Mexico. Thanks to funding from the American communist party, he was able to stay near Rivera and Frida Kahlo, but was eventually assassinated there. The manifesto denounces both fascism and Stalinism, and is a seminal text to the history of Muralism and Surrealism/Dada.
