Truth seeker extraordinaire.

The West will be saved by folks like Brendan.

Not bad for a Trot!

By reputation, Brendan is a Trotskyist, which I think means I should be wary.
I keep thinking he is laying a clever intellectual trap for me and that in the end he will let me down.
But in the meantime, I am astounded at his clarity of thought, his rejection of GroupThink, and the range of just eminently sensible guests. His podcast leads me to believe that all is not lost afterall.
Good luck with the brickbats.

Clarity in times of confusion

Brendan has the unique ability to deliver sensible guests , thought provoking calm observations of current affairs, respectful dialogue on the irony of the anti democratic emerging woke.
