The title pretty well explains this episode.  Opening with a monologue from Murray Rothard's "Ethics of Liberty" on the subject of conscription, setting a tone rejecting of the legitimacy of this practice. Find CJ at profcj.org or search for "Dangerous History" anywhere you get your podcasts.

This episode provides a little bit of context that can more adequately inform the events that are currently unfolding than you may get from a TV news report.  To understand what's really going on, at a bare minimum we need to visit 1953 when the US overthrows the Mosaddegh regime in Iran and installs the Shah.  When you peal back the onion to figure out the truth of what's happening in the Middle East, we uncover layers of proxy wars and in fighting within each given syndicate in struggles to power.  A region of the world torn by a century of war, ever since the overthrow of the Ottoman Empire in World War One. There's a lot of history and context to these conflicts that even the most outspoken of us can struggle to comprehend, but at the very least we could at least agree that we don't know enough to start toppling power structures in this tenuous part of the world. Despite having the largest military in the world, Americans have resigned to cowering in fear of a country with an economy the size of Manhattan.  This conflict has America and Russia written all over it, and the events we've witnessed in the past decade should tell us very well that the Cold War may have never ended, just was on hiatus. I have plenty of links for you: My discussion with Will Porter on the Iran Nuclear Deal.  I neglected to mention how this is also a crucial component, but there wasn't any more time to devote anyway in this episode.

Trey and Tony take issue with some of the views and conclusions of both Harris and Picciolini.

Topics discussed: Mainstream Media, Stefan Molyneux, Alt Right, the Russia narrative, and white privilege/white guilt.

Trey's Show Notes (timestamps from Waking Up with Sam Harris podcast episode with Christian Picciolini)

Conspiracy theory simply pivoted to a new boogyman: from Jews to whiteness

Genuinely curious if he can delineate a disaffected unemployed white person from the rust belt from a well polished white supremacist.

Good points he makes:

6:00 - Details that not only people from broken homes become radicalized. Important point when we talk about Jihadism as well

15:00 - Potholes analogy. Great metaphor, and I think this is useful. What broke the cycle of his association with the white supremacist movement was having someone reach out an olive branch.

53:00 - Silence and violence are both bad ways to confront extremists

1:06:00 - Dylan Roof, radicalized partially by fake news. This is a complicated point for me, there’s good and bad in this short little clip of audio.

1:40:00 - Chris both says that all we have to do is admit that we’re a white supremacist nation. Then when asked about what to tell black people he seems to ..
