“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms… And the impervious shelter, beneath which it has prospered.”

Didactic Mind, Ep 112: The Itchy Red Blanket

by | Aug 24, 2023 | Podcasts | 1 comment

This episode of Didactic Mind is all about the misguided and very foolish return of Stalinism as an in-vogue political and social philosophy. This all came about because of the recent appearance by one Jackson Hinkle on Piers Morgan‘s show (Lord, have mercy, because that guy, right there, deserves a proper slapping), in which Jackson did utterly humiliate both Piers and his guest, Konstantin Kisin. But then, Jackson stated openly that he is a Stalinist, and believes in returning to Stalinist policies. This got me rather annoyed, because this is a trend I am seeing a lot of late on the channels I watch.

Therefore, in this episode, I explain why Stalinism is such a terrible idea, and where it actually led over time – to starvation, backwardness, and eventual economic collapse. Stalin’s economic model is not one for the rest of us to follow – it leads to very, very bad places, and its actual record in action is truly terrible. Just because neoliberal policies are failing completely, that does not mean we should trade in one set of huge failures for another.

Reading List

I reference a fair few books and works in this episode. Here is a partial list:

Protect Yourself From Big Tech

I make some pretty incendiary statements in this podcast, and in most of my podcasts. I can only do so because I take steps to protect myself from the Big Tech companies, and preserve my identity. You need to do the same – this is no longer optional, because if you don’t, the gatekeepers WILL come for your head.

If you don’t know where to start, then I’ve got you covered right here with this post. Here are the specific steps that you can take:

  • Make sure that your web traffic is safe and protected from prying eyes using a VPN – click here to get a massive 80% OFF on a 24-month subscription with Surfshark;
  • Be sure also to check out Incogni, the new data and privacy management tool offered by Surfshark, which simply works behind the scenes to ensure that no malign actors can take advantage of your data ever again;
  • Another solid VPN option for you is Atlas VPN, brought to you by the same company that creates NordVPN;
  • The best SSD drive that you can get right now, with blazing fast speeds and near-native storage capabilities, is probably the SanDisk Extreme 1TB Portable SSD with NVMe technology – I bought this myself to keep a moving backup of all of my files, it’s the size of a credit card, and it’s absolutely superb;

Build Your Platform

  • Get yourself a proper domain for your site or business with Namecheap;
  • Put your site onto a shared hosting service using A2Hosting for the fastest, most secure, and stable hosting platform around – along with unlimited email accounts of unlimited size;
  • Create beautiful websites with amazing, feature-rich content using Divi from Elegant Themes;

    Hinkle does give off the ‘Based Gen Z’ vibe, and certainly a smart enough guy. But when he said in the course of one of his shows he was a communist, the casual conversational way he threw it in frankly threw me.

    Communism is NOT any way ‘forward’. The oligarchical nightmare we’re living through right now isn’t either, and it would be a false dichotomy to suggest it’s ‘either/or’.

    I unsubbed after that. He’s either incredibly naive or just another breed of ‘glowie’ to me now.
