Matthew Drake is an artist, illustrator, and YouTuber who creates fast motion videos that highlight contemporary philosophers and speakers.
Patrick welcomes Matthew to the show for a discussion about his videos, which address important socio-political issues and feature his own original illustrations. We go on to discuss nationalism, libertarianism, Trump, and mass immigration. Matthew starts by telling us about his YouTube channel, the ideas and thinkers that have influenced his work, and his intellectual journey thus far. We then talk about ideological nomenclature and its subtleties; and the ability of Identitarianism to transcend differences and unify nations into cohesive groups. Matthew articulates his conceptualization of sovereignty and how it radiates outwards from the individual. We also broach the subjects of the contemporary Left’s inversion of reality; the cultural elevation of the grotesque; religiosity as a counter-weight to nihilism; race and IQ; and the malevolent motivations of the globalist elite.
