Two guys have a beer in a restaurant. An extremely interesting informal video conversation primarily about the irrationally and dangers of identity politics.
(100 minutes - lots of great points throughout))

    I also identified freedom of speech , racial equality,
    Merit based pay and Power to the people not power to the elite bureaucrats as well as individual freedom as a liberal. Now Those views are Alt Right. The left is a house of cards today and
    The storm is about to hit.

      They both argued, very well, that freedom of speech, racial equality and other classical liberal ideas are what this modern identity politics is attacking. Brendan calls the followers, “Identitarians.” That label should stick.
