Bryce and I begin by talking a bit about the polls regarding the presidential race, all the while trying to avoid pretentious douchery…then I give him all the critiques I have of one of his term papers, and we finish out strong talking about how echo chambers stifle the ability to gain perspective.
But we do take a closer look at what is meant by “systemic racism” and explore possibilities of problems in the black community outside of the conventional media narrative. Bryce and I also venture into what “gerrymandering” is, how it affects you and me politically, and lament the corporate takeover of politics and how to balance that corruption while preserving the Bill of Rights.
If anything, our hope is to begin conversations among friends and family…that’s the hope.
Tonight on the Resistance Podcast, Bryce and I take a look at presidential hopefuls Jill Stein (Green Party) and Gary Johnson (Libertarian Party), and their differing philosophies. At the Resistance we fully believe that non-participation is acquiescence to the status-quo, and that if you want to be free, the status-quo is precisely what must be challenged.
We find ourselves, this election cycle, at a momentous crossroads; as Americans will set the precedent for the future political landscape. With two candidates who showcase record low popularity the stage is set for third party viability. Do we have the courage to break the two party duopoly? Do we truly wish to choose our candidates or to have them chosen for us?
