The USA is riven by an ideological divide like never before in history, with the possible exceptions of 1776 and 1860. Half the population wants to cancel the other half. Everybody’s in their own echo chamber, their own social media bubble, dismissing everything the other side says as lies and “conspiracy theories.” In hopes of starting some actual dialogue, we’re going to bust down the barriers and bring on three people with distinctively different ideological orientations. Call it “an alt-right white identitarian, a recovering leftist, and an unreconstructed left-liberal walk into a radio show.”
First hour: Prof. Kevin MacDonald of the Occidental Observer recently published Cat McGuire‘s article “I was at the Washington D.C. ‘Save America’ rally.” Not so many years ago, that would have seemed incongruous: Cat was a hardcore leftist while Kevin MacDonald, an evolutionary psychologist, has long been an intellectual inspiration of the white identitarian movement and the alt-right. But now, as hegemonic pseudo-liberal oligarchy mutates into tyranny, MacDonald and McGuire aren’t so far apart. Both side with the (nonviolent) folks at the Stop the Steal rally, and both are pessimistic about America’s future under a Biden Administration.
Second hour: Another psychology professor, William Woodward of the University of New Hampshire, continues to espouse same left-liberal ideals that have inspired his commitment to many causes, including 9/11 truth. Among his interests is the “neocolonial heritage of Western psychology”— a very different approach to the discipline from Kevin MacDonald’s. Woodward, unlike MacDonald, sees (faint) hope for a better US foreign policy under the coming Biden Administration. He recommends Ray McGovern’s “Can Burns Change the CIA?” and hopes the answer is “yes.”
