That's because it spends the whole video eating.

I have recently become a little addicted to the youtuber, Blaire White. Given how well known she is this one might not be new to others :P

Her politics are to the right on a lot of stuff (she is a republican) but not so far to the right that I can't see her point, even if I disagree with it.

On other issues she expresses views I agree with - like her take on a lot of the current LGBT and 'SJW' activist scene. As a trans woman herself, on the right politically, she brings some interesting balance.

She's very entertaining and has opened my eyes to a bunch of stuff that hadn't really crossed my radar particularly around the trans rights movement and LGBT community and some of the more extreme nonsense coming out of the current radical feminist scene

I don't think this stuff has hit the UK with quite as much force as in the US but it is a growing issue nonetheless.

I'm not going to shit on 'the Left' because there is still a core that is traditional left, with people fighting against actual inequality and promoting genuine inclusivity. And, there was always a strand of the left that was bat shit crazy - and there was always a strand of well-meaning middle-class academics and students 'fighting for the oppressed' and signing up to marxist parties because they were intellectually supportive of the working classes, without any real affinity for working-class culture.

But the current generation of activists have a strand that makes the bat shit crazy of my youth look sane.

It isn't enough any more to recognise oppression or systemic inequality and work towards change - now we are inventing oppression, often eclipsing the real inequalities and issues, and movements, or responses to real problems get hijacked by this destructive wing of ... I say left but a lot of this isn't really 'left', it sits outside the left/right political dialectic, often running directly counter to what has been understood as left wing in the past and also counter to what has been understood as right wing.

From what I have read and watched, some of this may have been a conscious effort by disillusioned marxists to transpose the core dialectic from a class analysis that incorporates race and gender to a classless self-identity and intersectionality based analysis, effectively obliterating the main ideas that actually united the left at some level (and still does for the mainstream, non-Youtube and campus based left)

Anyways - I'm rambling.

Some of Blair's videos.

A lot of traditionally liberal thinking is getting crowded out with this form of bullshit.

I think of my very liberal mom, ex-arts administrator for the state, who said to me as we watched the New Year's Day Mummers Parade: "The government ought to promote this, make it easier to see; it's actually a type of working class folk art, and it's really rare for something like that to develop and last."

All I could think was, oh, ma, it's so sad, things changed and you didn't notice it: this parade is just a tad too white. The city stopped helping pay for even the services for it in 2009... $1M out of our $4.5B budget, we can't afford it, they said...

So that's how fuck working class folk art became the official policy.

It's white, so what? It's also traditional, does everything have to change, to be updated to current racial/sexual balance? Should we add blacks wearing white face? Does everything have to pass the politically correct task force approval? If so we'll have no heritage left. Listen to your mother!

I just started Part 3 of Homo Deus. Harari has a gift of telling you what you need to hear rather than what you want to hear. He can very dispassionately discuss the emotionally turbulent issues that plague our time.
If you would only recognize that life is hard, things would be so much easier for you.
