The Successor Ideology

What do young progressives believe? In the popular vernacular, they are described as “liberals” or “leftists,” but these familiar labels obscure what is novel about the ideology many young activists are trying to advance in our universities, cultural institutions, media outlets, and even corporations. On issues of race, diversity, gender, and sexual expression these activists have made a clean break with their liberal forebearers. Tune in to hear from our panel of experts: Manhattan Institute (MI) fellow and City Journal contributing editor, Coleman Hughes; New York Times opinion columnist, Ross Douthat; and columnist for Tablet Magazine, Wesley Yang—moderated by MI president Reihan Salam. Together, they discuss the “Successor Ideology” that is quickly becoming a major force in our national life.
