What is “woke capitalism”? In the eyes of David Azerrad, why are large corporations now taking stances on highly controversial topics that they would have previously avoided?

Why does Azerrad think that the radical left has abandoned its push for egalitarian utopia?

And what does he see as the way out of the “culture wars” in America today?

This is American Thought Leaders 🇺🇸, and I’m Jan Jekielek.

In this episode, we’ll sit down with David Azerrad, an assistant professor and research fellow at Hillsdale College. Previously he was a fellow at the Heritage Foundation and director of the B. Kenneth Simon Center for Principles and Politics.

American Thought Leaders is an Epoch Times show available on Facebook and YouTube.
