In this special Subversive episode, I'm joined by one of the most influential and observant social critics of our age, a man who has seen it all and lived to tell the tale.

We speak about crime, anarcho-tyranny, the allure of violence, the concept of evil, religion, liberalism, decadence, mental illness, identity, stigma, and much, much more. This was one of my favorite conversations on this podcast, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Anthony's recommended subversive is Simon Leys, an essayist, and sinologist, one of the first intellectuals to denounce the Cultural Revolution in China and the idolizing of Mao in the West.

Anthony Daniels, who is more well known by his pseudonym, Theodore Dalrymple, is a retired prison physician and psychiatrist and the author of many, many wonderful books, among them “Life at the Bottom” and “Our culture, what’s left of it."
