Western Leftists, the Need for Action, and Other Questions with Henry Hakamäki (cohost of Guerrilla History Podcast)
Manage episode 317072766 series 2905708
In this episode I had cohost of Guerrilla History Podcast, Henry Hakamäki, to discuss quite a few things. We started by discussing some of the great conversations and lessons Henry himself has been able to take from the episodes they have done with guests such as Comrade Joma (Jose Maria Sison), Vijay Prashad, Immanuel Ness, Gerald Horne, and plenty of other incredible guests, and how folks need to be taking these conversations and using them to guide their actions, not simply consume them and become self-absorbed in "self-knowledge". Information and education is meant to be shared, used, and operated with in order to change our material reality- not simply to fill one's own mind with. Then we began discussing some of the issues facing Western Leftists, generally, in terms of lacking organization and active mobilization, as well as the difficulties in connecting to the struggles of other nations and people worldwide, especially by those in the West who seem to have no interest in an anti-Imperialist movement. We then closed out on some discussion of books we've recently read and things we thing folks should check out.
