Reflections on the Joe Rogan Experience #1203 – Eric Weinstein….
I would propose the Intellectual Dark Web movement arose (perhaps in a hybrid form) from the now almost defunct 4 horsemen of Atheism counter culture phenomenon. Social media lapped up the 4 horseman’s courageous and authentic questioning of long held beliefs. Arguably the standout was the genius of late Chistopher Hitchen’s counter-arguments. This created a tsunami of radical thinking mostly espoused online and has had ripple effects up until this day. In the later portion of the above interview, Eric big notes his brother Brett in a recent debate with Richard Dawkins… who lets be honest is getting on…and arguably his best days are behind him. Having said that even Brett can’t dismiss Dawkin’s massive contribution to modern biology with ‘The Selfish Gene’. All I see with Eric when he views the potential of the IDW are dollar signs and prestige. And Jordan and Ben keep teaming up boisterously against Sam as seen in their latest Rubin report interview. Who can blame them given it’s free-speech and all, but be careful fellas whose litter box you choose to take a shit!
1. The Political Compass Test. Where do you sit on the Political Spectrum?
2. What happened to the political left and why I bailed out?
3. Ezra Klein, a rational or irrational lefty?
