This is the reason I never miss a show! You consistently provide nuance and thoughtful discussion where most stick to comfortable and predictable talking points
The problem with this guy, is he is using how he was indoctrinated into religion, to indoctrinate people into politics.What does it mean to be left? What does it mean to be left? How can we get more people? How can we bolster our side? How do we fight back? It's sounds like religious war. Soon, bro-ham will have people knocking on doors as strangers shit like, "Have you accepted the left into your life as your partisan party and savior?"
You're a good man Ben and a great commentator. Speaking truth to ignorance. More power to you.
thank you Benjamin for speaking the truth and i am Syrian myself and its disgusted to see the left siding with this vicious dictator bashar alassd along with his criminal ally Putin. that Russian mafioso is a war criminal who are destroying every standing building including hospitals,schools and homes.
Where to start, wow, you want to deal with all the war crimes being committed around the world first? How about dealing with the war criminals in this country first, suchas, Donald Trump, Barack Obama, George Bush, Dick Cheney and a bunch of major, mid-level and minor functionaries in each administration. Your fixation on the alleged chemical attacks reveals a myopic view of this conflict. It is a continuation of both the Libya and Ukraine operations planned by the Bush administration and executed by ya boy Barack Obama. This is not a 2 sided coin but a multi faceted plan to gain geopolitical advantages against Russia, to secure Israel and protect Saudi Arabian interest vis-a-vis oil and gas supply to Europe. Whatever research you've done is flawed....badly flawed. A good starting point would be Alfred McKinder. His thoughts are the basis for U.S. geo political policy objectives. Summed up he says do not allow a land power gain control of the euroasian land mass or it's lights out for Europe and the U.S.
Iran has dumped the dollar for foriegn trade, that should ring a alarm bell that its about to get real tense on this planet for Mr. Benjamin Dixon but it won't. He's to busy looking at the shiny object over in Syria. Just admit it Assad has won.
Ben, I've been listening to you for a long time and I love it when you give new facts about an issue. However, lately you have been more interested in showing 'how good you are at talking about issues'. Your show is deteriorating into 'how much better YOU are at seeing the truth than others are'. You say we need to come together on issues - then you go on to show people why they are making things wrong! Ben, that is exactly what divides us. I want to hear about what is going on - the things we aren't talking about - how people are fighting back - not how good you are. You are becoming like H A Goodman - heaven forbid!!!
Your analysis are starting to deteriorate. Once again I disagree. Ever since the end of the 2016 elections your commentary has been too in line with mainstream media. Now, I think you’re trying to audition for a position.
"..consider yourself conservative but i don't know why you would listen"maybe those are the people that actually hold extremely liberal views as the statistics say but they call themselves conservatives
I've given up trying to influence or educate anybody in any way. The level of triviality, shallow argumentation, hostile ignorance and conspiracy theoretic thinking is just too much for me; it's not healthy to witness absolute stupidity (on both sides of the American political spectrum!) every day and not being able to convince anyone. I'm turning into a cynic, pessimistic person, if I carry on doing what I do and that's not an option. I will stop trying and switch my attention back to our (boring, but sane) German political landscape again. I'm sick and tired of the United States.How would your president describe the hopeless circumstances of my departure from American politics in eloquent and momentous terms, you might ask; he would testify: "Sad."The fact that a 24 year old German guy, who barely passed his English class at school, is able to articulate his thoughts better than your president, should worry you! just sayin'
edit.: But I really like The Benjamin Dixon Show! Keep up the good work.
What are you talking about? How is the left not "anti-war" in Syria.
FFS, you're not considering Democrats "the left," are you?
Off topic, did you ever get the chance to listen to Yvette Carnell’s response to Claude Anderson’s “Powernomics”? Glad to hear you back.

What should the Democrats be doing now to promote Progressive Policy?
