We Would Prefer Not To: Against a Politics of Catharsis- UNLOCKED
Mar 02, 2020 Season 2 Episode 8
Chris, Kevin, Jenny, and Jason

We had an episode planned where we were going to talk about the Bolsheviks and Early Soviet Law, but our main law dude (Steven from Supreme Leap Forward) got deathly ill and bailed on us. So, we are unlocked one of our Patreon episodes. Please forgive us, but trust that we have some good stuff coming up. 

Sometimes doing something (anything!)  is much worse than doing nothing;  we really need to figure out when that is. We read and thought and talked about an article that admonishes us to think and talk and read before acting. We have to stand against a politics of catharsis, a politics that does nothing but makes us feel like we are making a difference.

But... then what do we do?
