241 | Bret Weinstein: Three Years After the Protest
In the spring of 2017, two weeks before I was to graduate from The Evergreen State College, a series of protests erupted on campus, ostensibly regarding racial inequities. Students blockaded buildings, rounded up staff and faculty, verbally harassed anyone who disagreed or questioned their methods, took administration hostage, and went so far as to roam the campus with baseball bats, in an extracurricular attempt to "community police." The first individual they targeted was Evolutionary Biology Professor Bret Weinstein, who had been arguing against certain measures the college was taking to make anti-racism the central focus of collegiate life. And although the students never meant him to be the focus or their unrest, he publicly called out their actions, and became the lightning rod that grounded the events in terms of academic freedom, toxic progressivism, and what it meant, in 2017, to be or to not be a racist. In this episode, Bret and I discuss the lessons to be derived from this protest.

He responded to a brief youtube video I made about a clip of Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, seeming to argue that restricting speech is the path to insure a free Germany. I was unaware of the complex issues of the German politic, and so I invited Logan on to fill me in on the situation. This was a very informative talk, and brings to light the problems with establishing a political Overton Window, where the lines around acceptable discourse keep alienating more and more the populace, whose voices aren't being heard.
