Thanks for the thought provoking discussion. A thought: Toward the end of the podcast, they discussed the question of the outlook of young white males, specifically in terms of the fear becoming a minority. I see racial change as generational, with each succeeding generation making more progress than the last (I hope).

My nigga Chris Hansen aka All In!! I am so impressed with this show. One of my favorites. If we don't seriously entertain the idea that we need to address how scared white people and conservative people are of where we wanna take things people are going to do horrible and strange things to justify their beliefs. It won't matter the tribe cause they all will do it. Shit's gonna get real culty. Wild Wild Country Style.....

Professor Chua advocates a host of ahistorical arguments in this interview, from treating a desire by liberals to limit voting rights on technocratic grounds is a new concern (US was global leader in the eugenics movement), that it's "Latin American elites" who build democracies based on excluding mass participation (check out the Federalist Papers & Jim Crow policies nationwide support), to claiming 'both sides' wish to dismiss public input & the democratic process when self described Centrists poll most willing to devalue elections ( Finally, her concern trolling of the risk for social disruption that accompanies challenging the "(white) super identity" of the United States conveniently ignores the measurable death and public strife that accompanied post Reconstruction apartheid regime US. From 10s of thousands of lynchings to ethnic cleansing to still existing health disparities & outcomes, you have only to look at the treatment of black and native populations to see her fears already present.

I love this podcast. But Chris ends every other sentence with "right?" as a soft buy-in to validate his point and it drives me absolutely insane.

One of the most intellectually comprehensive and realistic conversations on what's happened to the internet and WWW from the early days up til now. Excellent conversation to ponder.

If Obama had anything to do with it, Trump wanted nothing to do with it. and it hurts him constantly. I'm glad.
