While Roderick is off gallivanting across the third world (either getting a kidney stolen or throwing commies out of a helicopter with Based Duterte), Brett, Everitt, and Peter sat down at NPRâ€™s round table to discuss a meta-topic not often discussed in the Alt-Right: practical social issues. Specifically, the discussion revolved around three major topics: abortion, gay marriage and/or gay rights, and women in combat. We all have different opinions on these topics (even if some of us havenâ€™t given them much thought) and so it was nice to sit down and hash them out.
As usual, below is an outline with the highlights from the show (as well as links to articles and books referenced) and weâ€™ll see you next time!
0:00 â€“ Introduction
0:54 â€“ Peter clarifies his role at NPR and is confirmed for Contrarian Alt-Right (Con-Alt-Right)
1:17:20 â€“ Robert A. Heinlein on women in the military:
â€œ[T]here is very strong reason why female Naval officers are assigned to transports: It is good for trooper morale…Can you think of anything sillier than letting yourself be fired out of a spaceship with nothing but mayhem and sudden death at the other end? However, if someone must do this idiotic stunt, do you know of a surer way to keep a man keyed up to the point where he is willing than by keeping him constantly reminded that the only good reason why men fight is a living breathing reality? In a mixed ship, the last thing a trooper hears before a drop (maybe the last word he ever hears) is a womanâ€™s voice, wishing him luck. If you donâ€™t think this is important, youâ€™ve probably resigned from the human race.â€ â€“ Robert A. Heinlein, Starship Troopers, (New York: Ace Books, 2006), 260.
Brett rejects materialism and wants to preserve the feminine mystique that combat might destroy
