The 2024 Elections

Podcast audio:

In this episode of New Ideal Live, Onkar Ghate and Elan Journo give a preview of ARI’s 2024 presidential election coverage and comment on some of the major political issues at stake in the election.

Among the topics covered:

  • How ARI uses Objectivism to analyze elections and the wider political culture;
  • What the Trump phenomenon says about the state of our political culture;
  • The unprincipled nature of the political responses to recent domestic and foreign crises;
  • Symptoms of growing political tribalism, such as people’s increasing willingness to protest;
  • How bipartisan attacks on tech companies reveal a deeper turn against producers.

Mentioned in this podcast is Onkar Ghate’s New Ideal article “One Small Step for Dictatorship.”
