In the first segment we talk about the role of arts in the public discourse. The new restrictions of a chaotic class that used to challenge order and has come to perceive itself as the hectoring gatekeepers of the debate. Did postmodernism go from being inspirational to “truth is whatever the authority of the day likes to hear?” What roles do schools play and what roles should they play?
Since Gamergate it became clearer that the younger generations react against anti-masculine venom. At the same time the left doubled down. We discuss how the well-monetized pseudo-religion of the good intention industry has run out of purposes and is lashing out now, how they engage in witchhunts against symbols and try to dominate the interpretations of symbols and our reality.
The helicopter-parent millennial generation struggles with narcissism and self-hatred. One outlet can be racism towards ones own group, which can take the form of white guilt or BDS. The other outlet is seeking confirmation in ones group and replacing all reasoning (logos) with the dos and don’ts of the peers (ethos). The newfangled religion seeks to replace Christianity, but cannot hold the candle up to it. Is the belief of a society the result of the game of politics, anyway? Is self-hypnosis, the consent to get deluded, the reason why some people really believe it?

The full interview in one go also on Youtube.
I didn’t use Reddit in ages and I just posted yesterday’s video there to seek ways to expand the reach of my content. I got that conversation:
Of course, I cannot ask back where this last dude sees the differences between the US Greens and the German Greens. What I find shocking is that word ‘concern troll’. What the heck is that? I cannot believe that people brush aside objections and ‘fears’ without arguments and rather insult people who raise concerns.
Meanwhile Black Pigeon Speaks has been thrown off Youtube.
I use Youtube as a backup channel, but I hope to build up a more sustainable place at Dailymotion.com in the meantime. Occasional videos will also be dropped at Bitchute (although it is still buggy) and maybe DTube. My LiveLeak account is broken and their support team is not responding. It’s odious.
A new German law introducing state censorship on social media platforms came into effect on October 1, 2017. The new law requires social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, to censor their users on behalf of the German state.
Social media companies are obliged to delete or block any online “criminal offenses” such as libel, slander, defamation or incitement, within 24 hours of receipt of a user complaint — regardless of whether or the content is accurate or not. Social media companies receive seven days for more complicated cases. If they fail to do so, the German government can fine them up to 50 million euros for failing to comply with the law.
