Understanding the Dissident Right (Masculinist #53)
Show Notes

Why do young men today turn to online men's gurus instead of to the church for identity, meaning, belonging, and guidance in the current age?  This issue looks at the "Dissident Right," a large grouping of people and movements that accounts for a good chunk of these online gurus.

I discuss what the Dissident Right is, how it differs from a different group the New Right, what groups of people constitute it, and what some of its major characteristics are. This issue in particular discussed the atheist metaphysics and Nietzschean ethics shared by many of these figures.
