Conversation with Theo Jordan

Late Night Digital Beer with a Bloke From X/Twitter

🚨This is a cross post of an episode that originally appeared on Theo’s Substack🚨


In this conversation, the Theo and I discuss various topics, including recent events, the awakening to anti-Semitism, the influence of environment on character, the connection between wokeness and the USSR, and the insult of wokeness to those who have lived under oppression. The conversation covers topics such as fiscal sponsorship and BDS, funding radical movements, the pendulum swing of ideologies, and the inverse casting of woke ideology. It also explores the parallels between Catholicism and woke activism, the impact of friction and character development, and the saviour complex in decolonization efforts. We delve into the funding of domestic radicalism in universities and the audacity of removing leaders and conclude with a discussion on the cult-like following of Justin Trudeau. Theo and I cover topics such as foreign interference inquiry, nepotism, the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab's remarks, lack of accountability, media coverage, passing of laws in British Columbia, the role of the fourth estate, differences between Canadian and American politics, the misuse of emergency powers, abuse of power and majority rule, dehumanization, propaganda, selective valuing of lived experiences, hatecraft and cult speak, cognitive dissonance and denial, the burden of history, and bath time as an opportunity to consume information.


  • Recent events have sparked conversations and awakenings to issues such as anti-Semitism and wokeness.

  • The environment in which people grow up can shape their character and perspectives.

  • Wokeness can be seen as an insult to those who have lived under real oppression.

  • It is important to have open and uncomfortable conversations to understand different perspectives and challenge preconceived notions. Foreign interference and nepotism are concerns in the Canadian political landscape.

  • The World Economic Forum and its Young Global Leaders program raise questions about influence and radicalization.

  • The lack of accountability and media coverage in Canada is troubling.

  • The misuse of emergency powers and abuse of majority rule are issues that need to be addressed.

  • Dehumanization and propaganda play a role in shaping public opinion and justifying harmful actions.

  • Selective valuing of lived experiences and hatecraft contribute to division and polarization.

  • Cognitive dissonance and denial can prevent people from acknowledging and addressing societal issues.

  • Understanding history and consuming information critically are important for informed citizenship.
