Newest Mindgasms Podcast with the philosopher, socialist and podcaster named Ben Burgis. We discuss his recent debate with the so-called Conservative populist, Trump supporter and political commentator, Charlie Kirk, who is the head of the Turning Points USA Conservative nonprofit organization/think tank/lobbying group. Also, we talk about recent high profile instances of cancel culture, including the comedian named Dave Chappelle getting labelled as transphobic for his latest comedy special, and the R and B artist, R. Kelly’s music getting banned from Youtube because he was found to be guilty of something like sexual assault and sex with one or more minors.
Check out my last Newest Mindgasms Podcast with the philosopher and Socialist podcaster/political commentator, Ben Burgis on misinformation that public intellectuals like James Lindsay, Jordan Peterson, Dave Rubin and members of the Intellectual Dark Web have been spreading about philosophy. We discuss James Lindsay and Dave Rubin demonizing particularly CRT lately, along with Postmodernism, Critical Theorists from the Frankfurt School, every kind of Marxism, and lumping them all together as a supposed evil woke ideology. Ben and I also talk about Jordan Peterson having countless times almost made a career out of conflating wokeness with Postmodernism, along with his profound ignorance about Marxism shown in his debate with Slavoj Zizek. We get into the intellectual laziness, dishonesty, and lack of knowledge displayed in public intellectuals who claim that all of these separate academic realms of thought are connected in one coherent and consistent ideology, as well. Fringe, whiny, purple-haired social justice activists tend to be equally misinformed and intellectually lazy, which makes the problem worse by appearing to legitimize the strawmans of people like Lindsay and Peterson. We also discuss the fact that philosophical and political schools of thought such as Posmodernism, critical race theory, critical theory and Marxism contain some worthwhile or at least interesting ideas, as well as why it’s a problem to poison the well of controversial and supposedly dangerous philosophers.
