His support for the Iraq War so obliterated the reputation of Christopher Hitchens on the Left that the millennial and Gen Z socialists emerging since his death in 2011 are barely aware he existed. In a special crossover with Ben Burgis's Give Them an Argument show, we discuss Ben's attempts to change that with a new book, Christopher Hitchens: What He Got Right, Where He Went Wrong, and Why He Still Matters. To help us interrogate Hitchens's many contradictions, we welcome back to TPS his brother, Mail on Sunday columnist Peter Hitchens: an author the elder Hitch once described as so reactionary, he felt he should a wear a garlic rosary while reading him.
