Holy shit, not only is the "Stepfathers" "liberalist" BS cringinducing as all hell, this stream also revealed some hilariously high levels of stupidity and hubris. 'member back in Sargons chat with Spencer when Sargon kept arrogantly scoffing and proclaiming absolute non-arguments like "have you even read X"? Firstly, I found this funny because it's not an argument, it's frankly no better than Kristi Winters scoffing and proclaiming "I bet you don't even know how to run a linear regression model". Secondly it revealed Sargons own ignorance on the writings of those philosophers that he doesn't just simply explain what they were talking about if he's just so familiar with the topic. THEN! We get this shit show. Talking about human rights and how they're only things we give ourselves. FFS, when the soyfather was scoffing in his hubris at Spencer I recall him naming Locke and Paine. This conversation reveals his hubris and actual lack of reading on the topic. If he had as much understanding as he projects he had, he'd know that Locke and Paine have both written on the concepts of nature rights and legal rights and how they can be classified as distinct from each other. I'm far from being the most well read person when it comes to philosophy but I know that much from reading works of others who cite Locke and Paine. And then the topic of things like the EU and UN come up. Not once is the list of Fundamental Rights brought up: - Right to self determination - Right to liberty - Right to due process of law - Right to freedom of movement - Right to freedom of thought - Right to freedom of religion - Right to freed of expression - Right to peaceful assembly - Right to freedom of association That last one really messes up a lot of their objections to things like the concept of ethnostates. Baked in to the concept of "freedom of association" is also the right to dissociate and non-association. Selective memory and thought I guess. And let's not even start on the "what is white?" BS he pulled. Cause I know he's described himself as a "western chauvinist", he believes western civilization is the best. Cause then I've just have to introduce him to the writing on Transculturality by Welsch. But what is "western civilization" yo? I believe the phrase "not as smart as you think you are" is absolutely spot on. Edit: Also, HOLY SHIT the comments section and the elitist defensive attitude begins "lots of angry weebs and furries in the comments". Cause anyone who disagrees with you with a racist, sexist, tranpho- oh, sorry, had a flash back for a moment there. When you have to dismiss someone because of their profile picture, you're off to a bad start. A really bad start. Stream: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yaoPiRKQ9Os

"We've been talking for a long time about organizing and getting people together and who can do it but I'm not a leader of anything but people need to stop criticising my group they didnu nuffin and they doesn't exist because we need to be a united front of people with standards but we're all individuals and now we need a title to work under and a load of principle to guide us but we're not a collective identity at all because we're individuals, we'll just control our label and how people behave under it because they can't say anything, we must protect our identity but if other people do that it's collectivism but it individualism when we do it" The dissonance is so real it's uncanny. Actions and words, they do not align and then you look like a fool. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6YSdUQUwRE
