In this excerpt of my interview with Brendan O'Neill, editor of spiked!, about his collection of essays "Anti-Woke", he explains how over the last few decades the Left in the West has abandoned the very principles it was founded upon.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Brendan as host of "Politics and Polemics" on the New Books Network, published out of Massachusetts.
