(1) If you're unfamiliar with the School of the Americas, this is one place to start iheart.com/podcast/105-behind-
(2) I've unsub'd from the Behind the Bastards podcast because apparently I'm not far left enough. A pattern I keep finding is that I keep trying to gather information about neoliberalism / socialism / communism, but this podcast (and others) are presented so flippantly / sarcastically that to consume them you have to be deeply embedded, unquestioning in far-left frameworks... (cont'd)


... to enjoy / understand the humor of the speakers. A lot of far-left messaging seems to turn a corner wherein the tone assumes all listeners already come from a mental model of the world that already buckets so many things as obviously bad that they're just punchlines. I need explanations and teachings from history, not the constant assumption that I'm on the same page. Far left or right, I listen to podcasts to understand more, not sing with a choir that I already dis/agree with.
