This week we examine the problem of citing individual cases to represent collective problems. Our primary focus tends towards the misrepresentation of the rights of women in the United States. Violence, rape, power dynamics, and unfair advantages are all open topics.
In the later part of the episode, Jad introduces us to an interesting anarchist by the name of Keith Preston. Keith’s view of anarchism involves the ancient proverb of “The enemy of my enemy is my friend”.
Essentially his belief is that despite their often highly conflicting ideologies, all groups interested in dismantling the state apparatus should work together to accomplish the goal before going their separate ways. It’s interesting to think of radical groups like the Black Panthers sharing a common goal with a group as notorious and racially damaging as the Ku Klux Klan, just as an example.
