Outrage 35 – Why we need to abandon the Left-Right political spectrum paradigm – Hyrum Lewis

Do political labels truly reflect our beliefs, or are they just oversimplified boxes?

In this episode of Outrage Overload, we challenge the very foundation of left versus right thinking with guest Hyrum Lewis, professor of history at BYU Idaho. Lewis argues that these labels don’t represent consistent philosophies, but rather a broken paradigm that hinders productive political discourse.

Get ready to question everything you thought you knew about left and right.

Hyrum Lewis is a professor of history at Brigham Young University-Idaho and was previously a visiting scholar at Stanford University. He received a PhD in history and philosophy from USC.
