    I believe what he does now is probably what is needed to "de-radicalize" young men.

    It is a good idea to tidy your room. A less good idea to align yourself with known racists and reactionaries under current circumstances

    Maybe he does that, Idk. The guilty by association is a tough game to win (lose?) in this connected world.

    Dunno, not really. No one has ever accused me of boosting the Nazi signal.

    His entire shtick is that people need to forget about silly things like activism and get their own houses in order. Turns out he's a drug addled lunatic with insane ideas about diet and health. He's in no position to be preaching to anyone.
    Also that.
    I almost feel sorry for the guy. Almost.
    But Atkins was a huge fat bastard when he died, Ayn Rand ended up begging people for financial help... this kind of hypocrisy which represents the entire failure of the proponent's programme seems to be no obstacle to its continued zombie existence. Flourishing even.

    I too agree that it's a very good idea to tidy your room though.

    I think my main issue with him is his demagoguery though... he makes arguments which he must know are totally without merit.

    Imagine if you pulled and you bring them back to yours and there's all horrible socks and pot noodles everywhere. Vibe killer.

    Well yes that I guess... but really I think you need a kind of safe clean base to launch yourself into the world from. If you're depressed you can't tidy it and it depresses you further and it's a horrible bind. Took me a long long time to understand that though. When I was young and pulled and stuff I'm sure there were moments when I had to think of an excuse and run in ahead and hide dirty pants etc make it acceptable... in my eyes, I'm sure they laughed at me next day anyway.
    I don't get bedrooms where they have loads of pictures of girls with their enormous bangers out though... I'm hardly an instinctive lothario but even I understood that on my first day at university when I saw some of the other rooms and just kinda recoiled in horror.

    I don't think I'm a sanctimonious person. But i do think there's some lines you don't cross. There's times when you have to say, that there, is the enemy.

    If he's willing to lie that blatantly about something that ridiculous to an audience of millions, there's not much incentive to trust him.
