Bret Weinstein is far, far more centrist than I am, but this interview is worth watching. His characterization of the critical theory left as “neo-Maoist” and how the anarchist left has been overrun by them is spot on. What we need is a “Maoism-free” anarchist movement that also manages to avoid the “libertarian to alt-right pipeline” from the other end of the spectrum or co-optation by centrist establishmentarianism.

My fav part of this episode was the co-vid is a bio-weapon talk coming from a normie like Bret. I have a hunch Lyme, the Spanish flu, maybe even AIDs and Ebola could all be lab grown.
