"I identify as ... white, Pagan, pine tree, pink unicorn ... who are you to judge me!!!?" Is this statement merely a parody of contemporary vogue or does it indicate to a deeper truth? In this podcast we provide a sketch of the second option - we argue that notion of 'identity' applied by movements as Alt Right, as well as the establishment promulgated political correctness, is in fact a multifaceted attempt to reduce oneself and one's belonging to nothing. Or, if we are to be generous, to at least prepare oneself to permanent process of identification quite akin to metaphysical police interrogation; an endless session of self inflicted torture.
Also, we briefly dwell on the metaphysics of identity of Classical German Idealism and some of the ominous tendencies already present in this monumental spiritual movement.
In this podcast we take a look at the familiar theme of political correctness from seemingly unusual position: i.e. from the Left. By referring to passages from Guido Preparata's book Ideology of Tyranny claiming that myth of overpopulation cuts through both extremes of political spectrum, we expound upon the idea that the common core of contemporary darkening of the intellect indeed exists.
In this video we compare two instances of extreme identity politics - one being the ultimate piece of politically correct legislative drafted in 2015. for the "benefit" of European nations by then elite think tank, the other coming from then fringe Alt Right spokesman's talk given at approximately the same period. We propose that both instances of identity politics rely on congenial principles of identity based on negation where personal dignity of human being is founded on interactions of opposed social groups and not on the intrinsic value of human person.
In plain English: we demonstrate that the same kind of stench usually indicates to same crap, whichever nostril picked it up first, whether left or right.
Yours truly makes a disembodied cameo in this tour de force iteration of your favorite show. Jay Dyer, Andy Nowicki, Daniel J. Spaulding, Randy J. hosted by Hesher and Spore discuss wide range of topics as usual. Highlight's are Spore's heroic last stand in defense of her former employer, Clint Eastwood, Jay objectifying, and thus potentially offending, all human beings, yours truly appearing on the show although not really being there and Andy saying "ha" at all the right places.

In the third and final podcast on Political Correctness, we explore how Political Correctness serves as a method of manufacturing consent by complete eradication of language. The historical example used are German sustainable development policies in the light of immigrant crisis.
