Radical Politics: Then and Now and Then Again

Artwork designed by Kenneth Tin-Kin Hung.


Sold Out! Check it out via livestream.


While politics has its roots in the Ancient World, radical politics, Left and Right, are a product of the pre-modern and modern eras. This discussion will cover both the movements and individuals that created the present political landscape. The modern political era began with the French Revolution and is currently facing a resurgence of retrograde conservative movements and their dislike of the contemporary world, some of which, was generally considered social and political progress.


Join us for a conversation on radical politics, their beginnings, and what they mean to us today.
