We are joined in the Red Library this week by the OG of Leftist podcasting, C. Derick Varn, to read through Christopher Lasch's The World of Nations: Reflections on American History, Politics, and Culture.

In part 1, we talk the gaps in Leftist understanding of U.S. history, asylums, the history of feminist movements in the 19th century, the temperance movement, the New Left, the university as a reactionary institution, imperialism, and much more!

Varn brings so many icy cold takes you should put on your winter coat for this one, comrades! It's gonna get chilly...
