Saagar Enjeti joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss why a left-right labor coalition is unlikely. Enjeti hosts the web show “Rising” at The Hill as well as The Hudson Institute’s “The Realignment” podcast.

Enjeti argued against the possibility of a left-right coalition because of the left’s obsession with race politics that divides Americans. The resulting division, Enjeti said, is a tool to distract the American working class from noticing the class dynamics that allow the upper class neoliberal left to hold them down.

“The chief thing I wanted to get across is I do not think a left-right labor coalition is possible or even politically necessary in the days after the Democratic party has fully made the decision they want to become the party of upper middle class white suburbanites,” Enjeti said. 

Enjeti is the co-author of the book, “The Populist’s Guide to 2020: A New Right and A New Left are Rising,” with Krystal Ball.

    Great podcast!

    My brother started smoking pot regularly at 14. He is now 63. He still has the emotional maturity of a 14-year-old.

    My three years of regular use resulted in three years of little intellectual/emotional growth.

    Cannabis STOPS your emotional growth. In those days it was mild compared to today. The harm being done is incalculable.

    There’s a reason they call it “wasted.” It’s a deceptively simple way to waste your life. And you have no awareness of what your are NOT developing.

    Yeah, you can show up to your programming job. You are still emotionally immature.
