With the recent political changes occurring in Western nations comes a disturbing response that has no face, no restraint and no interest in reason. The rise of so-called anti-fascism — or Antifa, for short — has become the justified excuse for all manner of crimes committed to push an anti-Western agenda, to bolster weak egos, and to satisfy base urges. And we’ll be looking at this latest trend in Far Left violence through psychological, literary, and political lenses, paying particular attention to what motivates these attacks and the desire to be an Antifa participant, fascism and anti-fascism’s intertwined histories, Antifa’s Communist roots, the reliance upon the Internet to propagate and recruit, the mainstream media’s complicity in all of this, and why average law-abiding people have had enough.

Throughout recorded history, man has sought to improve himself by various means, including technological, financial, cooperative, and experiential. Much of this improvement is often short-term and limited to a single generation. But, what if you want to give your future offspring a leg up on survival and personal achievement? Could you take on the mantle of mythological gods and remake man in your own image? And not only could you, but would you? In this episode, we examine the controversial practice of eugenics, its advances, its past abuses, and its useful applications in the modern world. We’ll also look at the wide-ranging implications of this scientific endeavor and how eugenics has come to be defined over time.
