Is it reasonable to refer to the Hong Kong protestors as cockroaches? Should the Chinese government be defending the use of the term by police?

DEAP stands for Deconstruction and Exploration of the Axioms of Philosophy. We take topics and break them down until we're left with as basic of assumptions as we can think of. We then attempt to build an understanding of why we hold our beliefs about topics based on the axiom the hosts can agree on. The goal is to encourage conversations between people of differing philosophies to gain a better understanding of topics.

What's inherently wrong with human trafficking? Aircraft pilots traffic people all the time. In this episode we dive deep into what portions of human trafficking are actually bad...and it's not necessarily the trafficking...

To be extra clear, there are many crimes associated with human trafficking. We do discuss those, but we mostly discuss the act of moving people (generally WITH their consent). If you know of any circumstances where people are being trafficked involuntarily or are aware of any crimes associated with this topic, please reach out to the human trafficking hotline at the following:

DEAP (short for Deconstruction and Exploration of the Axioms of Philosophy) is a podcast that aims to discuss and refine knowledge on why we hold certain philosophical and political beliefs. To gain a truer understanding, we must not assume the validity or invalidity of any standpoints from the beginning. This will involve the advocation for positions such as “rape is good” and “genocide is good” which most people would agree are inherently invalid. As we’ve seen throughout history, though, beliefs have swung from one extreme to the opposite very quickly. Therefore, we MUST explore the affirmative cases for these arguments.
