Is the World Really Run by a ‘Leftist Elite?’ | Aaron Bastani Meets Matthew Goodwin
Everyone rails against the elite, but who are they? The left would say it’s the billionaires, the media barons, the oil tycoons, and the 1% – those who control our economy, our housing, and basic necessities. However, the right increasingly insists on the existence of a “new elite” of woke corporations, SJW celebrities, and snowflake university graduates. From headlines and social media feeds to TV screens, whether it’s some fringe YouTuber or the home secretary, you can’t escape it. In this interview, Aaron takes on one of the proponents of this theory, Matthew Goodwin, a professor of politics at the University of Kent whose book “Values, Voice, and Virtue” has been received glowingly by Britain’s establishment media.
