The Feminist Mystique

Jonathan and Richard discuss the many “Waves” of Feminism, from the Suffragettes to Margaret Sanger to postmodern theorists of gender and pornography. They also examine feminism’s effect on men, and whether the world needs another hero.

 

Frankfurt School Revisionism

Richard and Jonathan discuss the history of Critical Theory, the Frankfurt School, Cultural Marxism, and what has come to be known as Political Correctness. Cultural Marxism has often been deemed “revolution by other means,” but Richard and Jonathan emphasize the Frankfurt School reactionary, conservative, and elitist tendencies.

 

The Homosexual Question

Jonathan and Richard discuss the Homosexual Question. Topics include the history and biological nature of homosexuality as well as the rise of gay marriage to become one of the most important political shibboleths of the 21st century.

The Forgotten War

Richard and Jonathan discuss the Iraq War (2003-2011), which not too long ago defined politics and the 24-hour news cycle in the Western world, and now has become history.

The E Word

Richard and Jonathan discuss the Eugenics movement of the 19th and 20th centuries, with particular focus on its American pioneers, Madison Grant and Lothrop Stoddard. Eugenics has become taboo today–in the wake of Boasian anthropology and political correctness–but it was hegemonic in the first half of the 20th century, informing the thought of politicians and writers across the political spectrum.
