in this episode of lower case truth, maggie speaks with journalist and professor Henry Giroux about higher education and threats to democracy in post truth times. henry calls bs on jordan peterson (and others) who claim that the university has been taken over by the left. he argues that democratic public spheres and public goods are disintegrating and being replaced by a culture that promotes alienation, competitiveness and hyper-individualism. he says that people are dying for some sense of community and that the right has done a good job of filling in that narrative. but this is changing as we speak.
