This week the Nationalist Public Radio posse inspect a question which defines modernity and the basis of politics in our era: what is equality, is it a good thing, and is it a substitute for something else? Everitt Foster, James Price and Roderick Kaine look deeply into the philosophy, history and psychology behind equality and discover its roots.
In this episode, the team tackles Milogate and extrapolates from it to homosexuality and “social justice” issues that the Left has primed our society to fascinate itself with while waiting for the End. Instead, we look at some unorthodox solutions and question whether these issues are issues at all.
