96. Bret Weinstein Explains Unity 2020 – His Hope for the Future of the Country

Read more

In some sense the United States was an innovation, a bold experiment that turned into a spectacular success. According to Bret Weinstein, this success is proof of concept, and the system devised has been wildly successful at producing well-being, though unfairly distributed to certain population groups. The solution is not to un-invent the system, it's to figure out how to correct the unfairness. The system needs an adjustment. Bret believes that Unity 2020 is our way to break the corrupt duopoly holding this country in gridlock and sowing division between Democrats and Republicans. A biologist and evolutionary theorist, Bret's background is in studying complex systems and the evolution of humans in particular. He outlines his innovative and bold plan to galvanize disaffected voters, force both parties to meet in the middle and affect a lasting change in the way this country is governed. Will it work in 2020? Is there time? If not, what can we hope for in the future?

49. Bret Weinstein on Being Open-Minded, Thinking Independently, and Ending the Two-Party System

Read more

Bret Weinstein is an evolutionary biologist, former professor at Evergreen State College, and part of the Intellectual Dark Web alongside members like his brother Eric Weinstein, Jordan Peterson, Sam Harris, Joe Rogan, and Ben Shapiro.

Bret came into the spotlight as part of the controversy that occured at Evergreen State College (recommend a quick google), and is now using his platform to promote Unity2020, a new political system where two candidates from the left and right are drafted to become President and Vice President of the United States.

Bret and I spoke about:

  • #ShutdownSTEM controversy and Bret's stance on it
  • What really happened with the Evergreen controversy
  • The deep-rooted racism in the world and how we can take actionable steps to reduce it
  • Unity2020: what is it, why is it needed, and who are the candidates? (hint: one of them is a former guest on Growth Minds)
  • Why it's crucial that we remain open-minded while thinking independently

He has developed a new Darwinian framework based on design tradeoffs and made important discoveries regarding the evolution of cancer, senescence, and the adaptive significance of moral self-sacrifice. He is currently working to uncover the evolutionary meaning of large-scale patterns in human history and seeking a game theoretically stable path forward for humanity. With his wife Heather Heying, he is co-writing A Hunter Gatherer’s Guide to the Twenty-First Century and is the host of Bret Weinstein’s Dark Horse Podcast.

Conversations with Tom | Bret Weinstein on Ending Cancel Culture, Avoiding Civil War and How We Can Unify

Read more

Evolutionary theorist and “professor in exile” Bret Weinstein was thrust into the midst of America’s culture wars in 2017 while teaching at Evergreen State College. Since then he has emerged as one of the leaders of the Intellectual Dark Web. He is very aware of the severe divisions plaguing our society, and understands the energy behind those divisions. On this episode of Conversations with Tom Bilyeu, Bret Weinstein advocates learning to see both individual responsibility and collective responsibility simultaneously. He discusses the Unity 2020 platform, shares some insight on Andrew Yang’s presidency, and talks about what we need to do now to avoid civil war, environmental destruction, and general moral failure.

Are There Any Liberals Left? How the Cult of Campus Progressivism is Taking Over America, with Dr. Bret Weinstein

Read more

Biologist, evolutionary theorist, and member of the "Intellectual Dark Web" Dr. Bret Weinstein joins us for a conversation about cancel culture, politics, and his experience as a professor at Evergreen State College when he was one of the first people to be targeted for "cancellation" by radical progressives. Dr. Weinstein's research on human evolution gives us important insights into the impulses that motivate humans to join mobs and embrace chaos like what we see unfolding across America today - and which began on campuses like Evergreen just a few short years ago.

Dr. Bret Weinstein is host of the DarkHorse Podcast and a Visiting Fellow in the James Madison Program at Princeton University. Follow him on Twitter at @BretWeinstein.

#Unity2020: Ending the Two-Party System with Bret Weinstein

Read more

“The obvious thing to do, if you want to win elections in the US, is make policy on behalf of the people… but they can’t do it, because the purpose of these parties is corruption.”
— Bret Weinstein

Location: Zoom
Date: Friday 3rd July
Company/Project: DarkHorse Podcast
Role: Host

In 2017, Bret Weinstein was thrust into the public limelight, when he objected to a change in the college's tradition of observing a "Day of Absence". Bret stating that "there is a huge difference between a group or coalition deciding to voluntarily absent themselves from a shared space in order to highlight their vital and under-appreciated roles, and a group or coalition encouraging another group to go away." It led to widespread protests and claims that Bret was "a racist" and the college was forced to close for two days.

Following the Evergreen College protests, Bret outlined the threat of behaviour like this spilling over into the outside world. His concerns were proven correct after the death of George Floyd.

In the days following Floyd's death, people took to the streets across the US and then across the world. What originated as a Black Lives Matter movement, quickly became infiltrated by far-left groups.

In this interview, I talk to Bret Weinstein, a biologist and evolutionary theorist, who was at the center of the Evergreen College controversy. We discuss the US protests, bipartisan politics, inequality, and where Bitcoin fits into this and #Unity2020.
