A Critical Reading of Karl Popper on the Necessity of Critical Discussion
I read and critically evaluate Popper’s paper on the necessity of critical discussion. Published in 1981, his paper is still relevant in light of today’s conflict in Ukraine. I talk about the seeds of both libertarian and collectivist thought in the paper; how to respond to people who act in bad faith; why we can’t trust Putin or Zelensky; why law enforcement isn’t as good as it should be; liberty, democracy, the West vs. the rest; and more.
It was late when I recorded this so I get a bit quieter as the video goes on.
