How the US’ Cold War liberals declared war on the world (Samuel Moyn)


On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Prof. Samuel Moyn, author of ‘Liberalism Against Itself’ and Chancellor Kent Professor of Law & History at Yale University. He discusses the transformation of enlightenment liberalism into the US’ 20th century Cold War liberalism, the failures of liberalism and the rise of Donald Trump, liberalism’s failure to understand the Global South and overreactions to perceived threats, the attempted rejuvenation of Cold War liberalism in the era of the Ukraine proxy war, and the Global South’s rejection of it, and much more.
