Much of the power of the radical left resides in the spread of its ideas in the shadows, away from the light of general public discourse. Within the realm of Academia, however, the ideas of these thirty great thinkers are prevalent, and their influence is real. The nation’s intellectual elites who have been molding young minds through education and the culture for decades draw on these radical theories to dramatically impact the society at large.
Americans who admire the Founding Fathers are largely unaware of these radical ideas and their influence on intellectual elites, although the Founders themselves anticipated such “progressive” notions and the sophists who would wield them over two centuries ago. Modern leftism is a kind of hodgepodge of ideas that are cherry-picked and removed from their philosophical context and weaponized to turn the nation into an authoritarian superstate run by the political class.
Find out what makes these thirty philosophers and intellectuals important in the minds of radicals with this irreverent, quick-and-dirty exposition leading to a synthesis in the most powerful political figure in the world. Not all of these thinkers are radicals; but their ideas are being used in radical ways by those who want to turn America upside down — or as they would have it, right side up.
