Donald and Rudy welcome Asad Haider from Viewpoint Magazine to discuss the present political moment. Using Badiou's "The Rebirth of History: Times of Riots and Uprisings" as a starting point, we discuss riots as a political expression in an intervallic period. We talk about the shape of the party should take to represent this political will, the racial context, overdetermination and spontaneity, and how history is being restarted.

Asad Haider is a founding editor at Viewpoint Magazine and the author of Mistaken Identity: Race and Class in the Age of Trump. In this conversation he explains how the history of anti-racist struggle in the United States provides a compelling set of ideas for a dynamic, anti-capitalist emancipatory practice. Along the way, we discuss the value of reading Marx in 2020, our distorted view of 1960s and 1970s radicalism, the significance of the Black Lives Matter moment, and much more.

In this episode we talk to Asad Haider. Haider is the author of Mistaken Identity: Race and Class in the Age of Trump (Verso, 2018), and a founding editor of Viewpoint Magazine.

We talk to Asad about his analysis of the Marxist idea of universal emancipation and how he addresses the debate of a race first or class first orientation. We also talk about the strategy of socialists attaining power electorally within a capitalist system, and how socialists should think about the state.

We discuss other forms of socialist organizing, strategies for building political power, and the shifting landscape of labor politics and capitalist economics in the COVID-19 pandemic.

Episode 1.14: The Emancipation of All: Marxism in the Age of Identity Politics – Asad Haider

Play
Read more

 CAPITALISM / SOCIALISM / DEMOCRACY  Interviewer: RAFAEL KHACHATURIAN. “Identity politics” is a term typically marshaled to attack something the speaker dislikes, whether it a conservative deploring “special rights” accorded to minority groups or a progressive bemoaning anything that distracts from a focus on economic justice. ASAD HAIDER’s 2018 book, Mistaken Identity: Race and Class in the Age of Trump, excavates the origin of the term within the radical politics of the Combahee River Collective, showing how foregrounding a widely neglected group – black women – was envisioned as a step toward realizing universal emancipation. In his discussion with political theorist Rafael Khachaturian, Haider argues that, by similarly embracing the ideal of the emancipation of all, Marxist traditions retain their political relevance even as they need to be continually rethought and reworked to address current crises, from the Great Recession to the presidency of Donald Trump. Haider is a visiting assistant professor of philosophy at the New School of Social Research and a founding editor of Viewpoint Magazine. Note: This episode was recorded on February 28, 2020, prior to widespread coronavirus countermeasures.

Then we talk with Viewpoint Magazine's Asad Haider (@generalityiii) about the task before us and about how to construct a radically new vision of society. Read Asad's work here:

What is the relationship between race and class, and which should be the primary focus for addressing on the level of political organizing? Questions such as these, argues our guest Asad Haider, miss the mark as they seek to make determinations about the world at the level of conceptual abstractions.

Furthermore, he suggests, such questions slide into a muddled debate between advancing either universalist or particularist demands. The reality, he suggests, is that the abolition of white supremacy and the advancing of class struggle are by necessity universal programs beginning with particular demands.

Asad Haider is an editor of Viewpoint Magazine and author of Mistaken Identity: Anti-Racism and the Struggle Against White Supremacy (Verso, Spring 2018).
