Asad Haider

Way more is possible: On depoliticization, resurgent radicalism and seeing the revolutionary horizon.

Writer Asad Haider examines the problems of depoliticization in modern politics - as the dominant ideological frame blinds us to the limits of our present politics and the possibilities of future alignments, the left must confront the failures of past revolutions and realize that another world is not just possible, it's necessary.

Asad wrote the essay On Depoliticization for Viewpoint.
