Sargon interviews Steve Bannon

Wow, Sargon may have hit the big time. Good for him if he has. Disagree with a lot of what Bannon says, but I think his look at what our finance system is and the shame of it (somewhere around the 20 min mark), is borrowing an Austrian analysis. And yes, he is probably better overall than the very very low bar of Hilary and neocons.
I have come to feel strongly that the greatest service I can still render to my fellow men would be that I could make the speakers and writers among them thoroughly ashamed ever again to employ the term 'social justice'.

I don't think I've listened to a full interview with Bannon before but I was surprised how dull he was. He really has only some very basic insight and isn't particularly charismatic. I suppose with the sea of confusion this days someone who is only partially right seems hugely radical or different.

Yeah, his name comes up every now and then in uni lectures as an Obvious Fascist but his stuff isn’t that radical really. His international politics are a little third positionist but no more so than, say, George Galloway. Or Pat Buchanan. The political compass is very skewed in the media right now though. It only reflects the people that it influences, and vice versa.

I wouldn't go so far as to say he's dull, but he's essentially just advocating "common sense" conservatism/patriotism - the fact that he's derided as a "fascist" or a "Nazi" for it is just a sign how far the left has gone in taking power. He's not as fiery as Trump or Farage, but then very few people are.

He's clearly not a fascist, that's retarded. I suppose I'm somewhat sympathetic to him overall so what he says it kind of well of course. I think I'd take more to him if he was more of an intellectual figure so he could compensate for his overall disposition. I'm probably being harsh but I suppose I want the best to be advocating for his position. As to who that is I'm not really sure. I don't know more academically inclined people who are that charismatic.
