Browncast Episode 68, Conversation with Pratik Chougule

Another BP Podcast is up. You can listen on LibsyniTunesSpotify,  and Stitcher. Probably the easiest way to keep up the podcast since we don’t have a regular schedule is to subscribe at one of the links above.

You can also support the podcast as a patron. The primary benefit now is that you get the podcasts considerably earlier than everyone else. I am toying with the idea of doing a patron Youtube Livestream chat, if people are interested, in the next few weeks.

Would appreciate more positive reviews!

This episode we talked to  Pratik Chougle, a conservative and a proud globalist. From being on Trump’s policy team, Chougle has become a critic and envisions a future conservatism sharply at odds with parochial nationalism.

  1. A globalist that’s not on the Left…interesting.

    I guess the other example I can think of is our own Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, an accomplished diplomat who speaks ~8 languages and has a half-Japanese family. To the surprise of many, the BJP chose him as our MEA.

    1. Was reading somewhere the whole point of appointing Jaishankar was for the Kashmir issue and its fallout, the BJP needed a specialist on the ball. The BJP wanted to move on Kashmir before 2019 election (so as to generate electoral benefits from it) , but Pulwama happened which made them change their plans.

  2. A globalist that’s not on the Left

    Globalism has nothing to do with Left and Right, conventionally pictured. Libertarian types like me are globalist to various extents. The pre-Trump Republican establishment could also be broadly classified under “globalist”. On the other hand, the Old Left, or the Labor Left, has been quite anti-globalist. Sanders and Warren are sort-of in this camp, I think.

    Anyone who likes the idea of relatively easy migration across international borders, and freer trade between countries even at the cost of hurting certain industrial and labor sectors within their countries can be considered “globalist”.

    as you know nationalism is a *progressive* 19th-century development in europe. there are still throne & alter right-wingers who resurface now and then, and some of them ended up (weirdly) in forms of transnational libertarianism.
