First hour: Michael Rectenwald stood strong for academic freedom at NYU for several years. Now he’s retired and still making waves! His new article “The Great Reset Rubric: Making Sense of Our Present Dystopia” argues that the oligarchs are using COVID as an excuse to impose “corporate socialism” i.e. neo-feudalism. Woke ideology and cancel culture, he says, are tools of the neo-feudalists: “Wokeness works by habituating the majority to the reduced expectations of the Great Reset. It does so by instilling a belief in the unworthiness of the majority to thrive, prosper, and enjoy their lives.”
Second hour: Philosophy professor Sterling Harwood, another academician who isn’t afraid of controversial topics, discusses his excellent book The Greatest Mystery of the Beatles: Critical Thinking on Paul is Dead & the Skeptical Sixties. Is there really any evidence suggesting that Paul McCartney died in 1966 and was replaced by a look-alike (of equal or greater talent and able to play left-handed bass while singing Paul-style harmonies?!) The surprising answer is yes, there is actually some interesting prima facie evidence…in fact, a very long list of clues, some of them more interesting than others. So what is the best explanation for the existence of that evidence—as well as the strong counter-evidence that the original Paul is still alive and well?
Professor Harwood’s book also debunks the Bugliosi/Warren Commission version of the JFK assassination, and considers purported evidence that the Apollo moon landings were faked.
