How did we get from Beatnik and Hippie culture to the Regressive Left today? How did equality and tolerance deteriorate into segregation and demands for reparations?
This week on the Needlessly Complicated podcast Yasha & Felix interview Michael Douglas Scott - author of The Q-Fragments, US Navy veteran and Beatnik in the 1950s. They touch on the liberal values developed by Beatniks, the change of liberalism over time, the rise of anti reasoning and the value of Zen Buddhism & philosophy to rational people.
