So, I just finished watching Dave Rubin's talk with Jeffery Tucker. During this talk they first went over left wing progressivism and everything that has gone wrong with the left such as the worship of identitarianism and collectivism.. The second half of this talk was going over how the right has the very same things going on - identitarianism and collectivism and how it all started. It was, all of it, very interesting to think about as they were talking about it. I have to say that we all discuss continuously about how the left's collectivism is the new church. However, at the same time we don't really think about how the right is doing to very same thing with it's alt-right white nationalism schtick. Both religions, which is how I think of it (there are academics on both the right and left who lay out very comprehensive cases on why these ideologies follow the same paths as religious zealoutry and the systems/hiearchies [could have their own discussions, really] they adhere to), are very dangerous in their own right. Both religions have killed uncountable amounts of people.
This is why I love Dave Rubin. He's not afraid to bring to light these issues and have discussions about them. These discussions make you take into consideration the other side of the story, even if begrudgingly.
