Some may find this scary because Hitler was also known to talk about “degenerate art”.
Paul Joseph Watson, who is himself a Millennial goes on an incredible rant here about the state of debased conformity in modern-day pop culture and about the creative paralysis of his generation. I have often shared the exact same observations that he is making here and it’s a relief to see someone his age making these keen pronouncements with such conviction and vehemence, particularly because this piece doesn’t include some of the off-color, misogynistic and intolerant rants that he’s also known to make.
As for his off-color comments, which receive lots of attention and opprobrium, I may be missing what it’s like to be in his shoes; to be a young man, around his early 30s, in this day and age. He appears to be very much an awakened witness to many of the psychological operations which I described in my own extended screed last night.
I was contacted by Watson some 17 years ago, when I was writing this book. This was years before his association with Alex Jones, where he is now the Editor of InfoWars. He was already a fairly well-established blogger by then, when he was a just a teenager. From his Wikipedia page, he was living in a council estate (what Americans would call a housing project) in the North of England.
Watson has been busting his ass as a writer, editor and now podcaster for nearly two thirds of his life.
