This week JG Michael of Parallax Views joined Pearse Remond for a wide-ranging discussion.
“We took a deep dive into the Clown World meme and what it says about society in a larger context. The discussion centered on how the meme evolved and its use within the 4chan, nihilistic, right-wing community. We talked about how the meme can be a truthful representation of the topsy turvy world we live in. JG also talked about the obsession with so-called white genocide. Talking about how this is used in South Africa by white racists in America. I mentioned Albert Memmi’s theories on the mediocrity of colonizers and how this affects them later in life. Later JG and I then discussed the “debate of the century” between Slavoj Zizek and Jordan Peterson. We both expressed our problems with debates as a blood sport and the serious issues within the academic community,” writes Redmond.
