Bowden! — The Essence of the Left

Re-introducing Bowden! These were a series of discussions between editor Richard Spencer and the late, great, AltRight thinker Jonathan Bowden. These broadcasts covered a variety of topics Cultural Marxism…The Left…The Right…Feminism…Race…and everything in between. No matter if you are new to the AltRight or just becoming AltRight curious, these interviews are a great place either to start your journey or deepen your knowledge.

If you want more information on the late Jonathan Bowden listen to Richard’s podcast “Remembering Jonathan Bowden” which can serve as both an introduction to this series and the man himself.

In this first installment Richard and Bowden tackle the “Essence of the Left”.

  • Bowden is sadly missed.
    He is straight on the mark about the Left and their ‘fight for equality’ or ‘fight for the recognition of difference’, which is (after all) simply a projection of the ambitions and power of the ‘other’ and their religious belief in their own spiritual and intellectual supremacy.

  • Jonathan is greatly missed. I have all his appearances on VR saved on my computer. I will listen to them from time to time. When I listened to this again, I was surprised how emotional it made me. I wouldn’t be red pilled without him.

  • These interviews were actually what introduced me to the AltRight. Bowden’s IQ was higher than every other member of the BNP combined.

  • We all grew up in an authoritarian socialist system, ie, the family. Hence, lots of people think thats the way society at large should function.

  • if you’re in the UK and are viewing this article, you’re risking 15 years of your life. welcome to 1984!

    • Trump needs to use his bully pulpit to push a simple “free speech” imperative into European politics.

      If “free speech” then proves problematic in the case of combating Muslim radicalization, then that narrows the problem appropriately. They should not be in Europe.

      You can have rights and liberties or you can have Muslims, but not both. Rights and liberties are essential for Europeans to right their ships of state.

  • Man I want the stuff that got taken down in the SoundCloud shutdown. Did you guys lose those files? Not keep any backups?

    • If you drive the island into further poverty with austerity measures, the PRs can just movie to the US and magically become Americans, free of the island’s debt and ready to vote Dem

  • Hear! Hear! Bowden’s erudite conversations and lectures were the best part about the Alt Right 5-6 years ago.

    There was also a great podcast with Richard, Colin, and Nowicki about John Wayne movies (Liberty Valance, The Searchers) that should be uploaded here.
