About Upstream:

Culture may be upstream from politics, but philosophy is upstream from culture.

All too often, politicians, pundits, celebrities, and other NPCs fabricate “principles” of behavior in an attempt to win the argument du jour. But what happens if we actually accept these premises and apply them universally? What happens if we consistently “believe all women?”

The Enlightenment brought the concept of universal application of philosophic principles to Western Civilization, but today’s leftists and their postmodern University charlatans have all but erased it from our culture. It’s time to bring it back.

Every Tuesday at 16:00 Pacific, we’ll examine the cultural and philosophical roots behind popular narratives spun on Twitter, cable news, or elsewhere, and examine the ideas that hide upstream from them. What would happen if we took those ideas seriously and applied them to everyone universally?
