In this interview, Karlin discusses my proposal for an Alternative Left which would be Left on economics and socially conservative or at least negotiable and sane on the Cultural Left. It would be for everyone who supports Left politics but its turned off by Identity politics and the SJW PC crowd. I would think there would be a lot of people out there who would support such a thing.
