Stefan Molyneux on the Truth about Makeup

Prof. Bret Weinstein Faces the Fruit of Hegelianism

Warning: The video below contains obscenity.

Prof. Weinstein attempts to frame the face-off between whites and blacks as a "dialectic" rather than "debate" since debate is an argument or exertion of power, but a dialectic is a supposedly neutral attempt to come to the "truth." Of course, Weinstein must know the history of this line of thinking. There is no such thing as truth in the dialectic but only higher and higher orders of synthesis, which embody the negation of truth since the dialectic nullifies the law of non-contradiction, and there is nothing stopping others from hijacking that progression and using it to exert force and power over others. His own liberal philosophy has backfired. As the "woman" near the beginning of the video says, "We don't care what you want to speak on. This is not about you. [...] This is not a discussion. You have lost that one." The dialectic is over, Prof. Weinstein. This is a debate.
