Why isn’t the Intellectual Dark Web (IDW) finding much traction?

For information about what and whom consist of the IDW, visit this web site.

I was reflecting on Eric Weinstein’s discussion above about the IDW on Rebel Wisdom.  His suicide bomber analogy at the ‘diversity’ dinner  was a real stand out.

Then I came to realise, the Intellectual Dark Web really doesn’t seem to be finding much traction. Obviously each constituent has their own fan base and all are gaining in popularity, but people seem to be reticent about embracing the IDW concept. Look at these numbers for instance:

So the IDW as a virtual constituency is a comparatively small renegade. Joe Rogan viewers remain loyal to him and Sam Harris to him and so on. But it’s unlikely Sam Harris fans are also Jordan admirers and vice versa. But there appears to be a lack of engagement and conversation between fan bases; a real parting of the waters as it were.

The numbers don’t lie and for someone who cherishes liberty over authoritarianism, and the importance of freedom of speech; the lack of IDW traction on the broader virtual landscape is surprising and frankly concerning.
