Ian Hislops let himself go, or is it Ben Elton? Aaron is a very clever guy steeped in academic knowledge, he hasn’t exactly gone to the sharpest knives in the drawer, has he? Regarding Cultural Marxism, it is a Thing or Several things to several groups, of course for Aaron it does not exist and Jordan Peterson means it even though he doesn’t say it ( much at least.

Novarra and Aaron are obviously Gatekeepers part of the NGO Sockpuppet Complex, probably watch Zizeck and Peterson if you want to see two people really talk these things through. This is as Cringeworthy as Sam Harris and Montbiot trying to have a dialogue with Noam Chomsky or In Defense of usury, Bentham’s attempted dialogue with Adam Smith. If nothing else this is an entertaining innovation on the Strawman approach to arguing with one’s self, The Monty Python Argument Sketch is the closest thing to it I can think of.

Harris same as Monbiot All about him Ego.( that’s only my opinion. I personally find Harris deeply annoying in the same degree that I find Niall Ferguson deeply annoying.)YMMV. Your Mileage may vary.

Noam —

I reached out to you indirectly through Lawrence Krauss and Johann Hari and was planning to leave it at that, but a reader has now sent me a copy of an email exchange in which you were quite dismissive of the prospect of having a “debate” with me. ZIzeck Peterson.
And here’s a Real Treat, Proudhon and Bastiat Go at it.

Last word for Bakunin who didn’t exactly get on with Marx as Aaron will know.
Emilio, Bakunin predicted that ;
”They [the Marxists] maintain that only a dictatorship—their dictatorship, of course—can create the will of the people, while our answer to this is: No dictatorship can have any other aim but that of self-perpetuation, and it can beget only slavery in the people tolerating it; freedom can be created only by freedom, that is, by a universal rebellion on the part of the people and free organization of the toiling masses from the bottom up.´´
—Mikhail Bakunin, Statism and Anarchism[36)

Aaron, I believe you Know Ranjan Balakumaran, if you would like to chat through your arguments with a real live critical thinking human being with a brain just tell Ranjan to set it up.

 Sören Kierkegaard famously said, “once you Label me, you negate me “This is what Kierkegaard actually said or wrote, a closer paraphrase in any event.

Kierkegaard said: “I am no part of a whole, I am not integrated, not included. To put me in this whole you imagine is to negate me. Who am I? I am an intensity of feeling in relation with beings, and particularly with the Divine Being, who excites my desire, my knowledge. I want to be in a kind of self-destroying contact with God, the Absolute Other.”

    The coming of the Roman Empire destroyed the community-based economy that God had provided for the children of Israel.

    The Sadducees and the priestly families that collaborated with the Romans were rewarded with large land holdings. Many accumulated large blocks of land. The people who had previously owned them were turned into tenant farmers, who had to hand over at least half of their crops to their landlords.

    The empire imposed exorbitant taxes on the ordinary people. This pushed most families into poverty. If taxes could not be paid, their property would be confiscated. The tax collectors got rich and the rest became tenant farmers or day labourers. Jesus saw the tax collectors as “sick” (Luke 5:31).

    For ordinary people, storing up wealth was impossible. If the Roman soldiers found coins or grain hidden in a house, they would smash the house.

    Debt was used to impoverish people and to steal their land. A person who was poor would be lent money at very high interest rates (50 percent) using their land as security. When they were unable to pay the interest or repay the loan, the interest would be added to the loan. In a few years, a small loan could grow to be worth more than the land given as security. The lender would demand the land to settle the debt.

    Herod built a Greek-styled temple in Jerusalem. His son Antipas built the new Roman cities at Deopolis and Tiberius. The governor of Judea built a new city of Caesar Philip in honour of Caesar. To pay for these building projects, the people had to pay tribute.

    People were hungry all the time.

    During those days another large crowd gathered. Since they had nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples to him and said, “I have compassion for these people; they have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat. If I send them home hungry, they will collapse on the way (Mark 8:1-3).
    The state of people’s health was so bad that going without food was debilitating.

    By Jesus time, most families in Israel had no land. Most of the land was controlled by a few powerful families and moneylenders. Tax collectors and soldiers would grab most of the crops that were grown and most money that was earned. The people were left with very little to live on. Most people were hungry most of the time. Many would have to find some work each day as a day labourer to buy their food for the day. That is why Jesus knew the people had followed him around the lake to listen to his teaching all day would be hungry. If they had not worked, they would have no food, and not be able to buy any.
