00:00 - 00:03A listener asked why are you still doing shows
00:04 - 00:05on art and beauty while
00:05 - 00:07the world is on fire, (here and here)
00:08 - 00:12this is the worst the world has been. at least in my lifetime
00:12 - 00:15it's nuts out there, craziness
00:17 - 00:19I'm always tempted to say
00:19 - 00:21forget about this politics stuff
00:24 - 00:26There's some truth to that,
00:27 - 00:28but also
00:31 - 00:33some naivete, and I don't think
00:34 - 00:36one can have that attitude anymore
00:53 - 00:58(If you support Trump, please leave the movement)
01:13 - 01:15You're sellouts
01:15 - 01:17You're the fifth column within Objectivism.
01:18 - 01:23You are what will destroy Objectivism
01:25 - 01:28and ultimately it will be on you if America declines
01:29 - 01:31 if America disappears
01:31 - 01:34if America succumbs to either
01:34 - 01:37the wackos of the left
01:37 - 01:40or the wackos of the right
01:40 - 01:42Some conservatives support freedom
01:42 - 01:46"Everybody's an enemy"
01:46 - 01:48We can't write off 100% of voters
01:48 - 01:52ARI is the only voice of sanity in the world right now
01:53 - 01:54and I don't say that lightly
01:56 - 01:57I'm looking, I'm searching.
01:57 - 02:00There's the libertarians
02:00 - 02:03but they are empty and their battle is futile
02:04 - 02:08because they refuse to make the philosophical case
02:08 - 02:13they purposefully evade the philosophical case
02:14 - 02:16so there's nobody else out there.
02:17 - 02:21There's us and that's it. (I hope that doesn't me sound like Stalin)
02:27 - 02:29So, don't view the enemy as an ally
02:30 - 02:34because you hate the left more
02:34 - 02:36Even if you hate the left more
02:41 - 02:42You've got to hate the right as well
02:43 - 02:47Only when you hate them both
02:48 - 02:53And I'm not saying to hate them equally
02:54 - 02:56But hate them both
02:56 - 02:59I hate them equally
03:00 - 03:02I hate the right more in many respects
03:04 - 03:07(He just misses being able to focus on art)
03:14 - 03:16but it might be too late
03:19 - 03:23we might've lost
03:25 - 03:26because we have
03:31 - 03:33so few allies
03:40 - 03:46and even the people who claim to be on our side
03:46 - 03:49are not
03:53 - 03:56(maybe I can get back to my art then)
