(Part One) Our investigation into the philosophical roots of social justice continues... Nikos Sotirakopoulos is a lecturer in Sociology at the Department of Social Sciences at Loughborough University, UK. He joins me today for more exploration into failed movements for personal liberation. We focus on the Frankfurt School and the New Left. Discussed: - Murray Bookchin and lifestyle anarchism - Book: The Rise of Lifestyle Activism From New Left to Occupy - a distinction between the old and new left - projecting what we don't like onto the Frankfurt School and postmodernism - a new narrative that allowed leftism to survive - Ayn Rand's warnings: "The New Left" and "Atlas Shrugged" - How did Frankfurt School thinkers view the Enlightenment? - The allure of the New Left in the context of the 1960s - the costs of anti-philosophical individualism - Marcuse: "make love, not war" what was his motivation? - what is meant by degeneracy? - Leftism diminishes self-sufficiency, economic remedies follow - the wrong ways out of alienation

Today, many young people are looking for personal liberation in all the wrong places. Discussed: - Thaddeus vs. Jordan Peterson: common ground? - letting go of a conspiracy theory - over-corrective responses to to Enlightenment problems - The Frankfurt School and Critical Theory - Postmodernism and identity politics - redeeming Marx from the horrifying political consequences - making a better world: the top-down and individual-up approaches - the consequences of biological determinism - the benefits of identity politics - the trap of identity politics (essentialism) - how people accidentally make themselves political pawns - subjectivity and its philosophical problems - my unfortunate history prioritizing group identity over my self (knowledge and improvement)

(Not a serious show; from the premium content archives) Only 50 people have ever heard the live pre-show for episode #368, but it is one of my favorite half-hours of School Sucks content ever. Osborne and I examine and discuss the University of New Hampshire's ill-fated "Unbiased Speech Guide." This was our first known encounter with the social justice movement in higher education, and you might find it interesting to compare our attitudes then to those expressed in numerous shows that followed in 2016 and 2017. Recorded on August 5th, 2015, this audio is the Pre-Show for [PODCAST] #368: Six-travaganza Live Show Highlights – “Memory Lane”.

Brian Sovryn and Stephanie Murphy welcome Brett to their studio for the final chapter in this series of our frequently requested long-form discussions (-THON). This time, we attempted to have a constructive and compassionate conversation (EMPATH-) about many of the issues I explored in the SPEED AND POLITICS series, even though we have many opposing political, philosophical and cultural views. In the end, it worked out. Today we continue our reflections on the series, talk about recent events and answer some listener questions.

Jeff Deist is the president of the Mises Institute. The institute is dedicated to teaching and research in the Austrian school of economics, and individual freedom, honest history, and international peace. It also hosts the annual Mises University event - a one-week crash course in Austrian Economics. Since we have devoted a lot content recently to exploring the behavior of college students and how they got there, we thought it would be useful to get Jeff's thoughts about the toxic culture overtaking higher ed and to discuss how free-minded students can defend themselves from it. Our conversation is build around two of Jeff's talks that book-ended the 2016 Presidential Campaign: PC is Control, not Etiquette | Jeff Deist (October 2015) Libertarian, Heal Thyself | Jeff Deist (February 2017)

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
