A teach-in by Chris Cutrone on the Death of the Millennial Left, held February 16, 2018 from 16:00-17:30 in RHB 137 of Goldsmiths, University of London, as part of the fourth annual Platypus European Conference. The discussion was moderated by Jan Schroeder.

From the Zero Books website (Jan, 18, 2018):

" Chris Cutrone is the founder and President of the Platypus Affiliated Society. He is also the author of the rather infamous essay “Why Not Trump?” and other essays such as The Millennial Left is dead and Democratic revolution and the contradiction of capital. In this episode of the Zero Books podcast we discuss the Trump administration’s first year and the left’s various panicked reactions to what Cutrone says is a moment of transition for capitalism itself and US politics in particular."
