Samuel Urban – The Illegitimate Scholar joins us to chat about History, Anthropology and how he became illegitimate. We talk about the Gilded Age, the Prussian model of education, influences like Carnegie and Rockefeller, the strange Anarcho-tyranny happening right now, the ruling class, American history, Clovis First, the Roman Empire trend, Nazi’s, Darren the train robber, and Indo Europeans.
In the second half we get deeper into social constructs and cultural relativism (selective), the rejection of human nature, reconciling woke and anti colonialism in terms of native genocide, white liberals, cooption of symbols and symbolism, ethnology, ancient vs modern human sacrifice, the Pretorian Guard, Yuval Harari’s writings, ancient advanced human culture, Tao Te Ching, killing the Indian to save the man, anthropology through the lens of materialism, and revelation of the method.
Our culture is in crisis and I don’t trust woke universities and authoritarian governments to give us the solution. I examine modern culture through history and anthropology, as well as other sources like indigenous knowledge and common sense. This is a show for those who love academics but hate academia, and want to learn about social studies without the constraining limits of woke universities.
