Mark Pellegrino talks politics and culture

If you missed Mark on The Daily Objective yesterday, give it a listen and let Mark know what you think!

Some of my main takeaways from this episode include:

  • People need to educate themselves to avoid being overwhelmed by the postmodernist narrative.
  • The Capitalist Party is trying to offer a real alternative to the ‘moral monopoly’ of the left and right.
  • There’s a need to seize the moral high ground and take back the term liberal which comes from the ethics of individualism.
  • Authentic stories about humans struggling for values in the world will resonate better with the audience than didactic art.
  • The popularity of superhero movies shows people still respond to individualistic ideas of good and bad.
  • There are people out there who could produce projects that help to change the way we look at the world.
  • Getting a political candidate with an objectivist mindset would be a more immediate way to make an impact than via academia.

Mark had a great debut — listening to this show is undoubtedly going to be interesting and thought-provoking.
