Mark Solms There is an attempt to recast physics "to use the dynamics we use to look @ cognitive systems - a specific kind o predictive interaction with the outside world."
On this episode of UnAmerican: In an era when we have more mass shootings than days on the calendar, Brandon, Franklin and Jim are faced with the reality that we will never stop telling the same sad story. This time we dive into the weird world of Fox's Mark Levin as he inappropriately reads the manifesto of the Buffalo supermarket shooter. We're angry, disgusted, saddened and defeated by this American problem; we're ready for change.

This week!We finally begin what might be the best book we've read (by our incredibly low standards) in quite a while. Cracking the cover on this beauty was like the first sip of an ice cold coke fresh from the fridge, the first slice of hot pizza, cigarettes after sex, feeding all of the addictions we've been in withdrawal for at once. In American Marxism we've finally found the kind of abject crazy mixed with just enough lazy writing that we've been looking for for oh so long, and we are excited to take you along for the ride!Thanks as always for listening and enjoy the show!Music: "Say You Will" by Shane Ivers - https://www.silvermansound.com

This Week!We begin our next book review of Mark Levin's "American Marxism" a book so thoroughly researched and comprehensive that the first few hundred thousand copies went out with allegations that a mysterious "Franklin School" was responsible for Herbert Marcuse and all of that "Cultural Marxism" they're slipping in in-between the CRT. Levin may be one of the angriest, and certainly the scariest author we've ever read, and we're excited to dig into the 300-page hot steamer Amazon delivered to our doorsteps.Thanks as always for listening and enjoy the show!Music: "Say You Will" by Shane Ivers - https://www.silvermansound.com

We take a look at American Marxism by Mark Levin. In American Marxism, Levin explains how the core elements of Marxist ideology are now pervasive in American society and culture—from our schools, the press, and corporations, to Hollywood, the Democratic Party, and the Biden presidency—and how it is often cloaked in deceptive labels like “progressivism,” “democratic socialism,” “social activism,” and more. With his characteristic trenchant analysis, Levin digs into the psychology and tactics of these movements, the widespread brainwashing of students, the anti-American purposes of Critical Race Theory and the Green New Deal, and the escalation of repression and censorship to silence opposing voices and enforce conformity. Levin exposes many of the institutions, intellectuals, scholars, and activists who are leading this revolution, and provides us with some answers and ideas on how to confront them.Finally on Twitter @KawFee_Haus Read new articles at KawFee Haus Korner on Substack Consider supporting the show on Patreon See what I'm reading on Goodreads Check out my book
