About this Episode

According to Deneen, liberalism has failed because it was true to itself. The Left and Right cooperate in the expansion of both statism and individualism. The liberal state both creates the individual and secures the free market through the increasingly massive and all-encompassing Leviathan. Both the free market and individual liberty have a solvent effect on traditional relationships and the social fabric.
