[August 12, 2018] More and more, I see that people aren’t looking for an ideology to help them live by, they are looking for ideas. And that is exactly what Dave Rubin is giving us by providing clarity about free speech, politics, the mass media, religion, and political correctness. His popularity is increasing while he does this.
“At the same time, while we’ve opened up a lane for honest conversation, plenty of people just want to push more and more hatred, dishonesty and division. It’s clear to me that they are running out of steam so will only get more desperate as they slide into irrelevancy.” – Dave RubinVerified account@RubinReport Jul 31 (2018)
Dave Rubin is the host of the Rubin Report, a political talk show and podcast. He rejects the tenets of political correctness when, according to his many followers, thus allowing for civil discussion across the entire political spectrum. Transparent debates (where name-calling, shout-downs, and violence are rejected) are something many are seeking. Most folks want to make reasonable judgments based on the merit of ideas.
Rubin describes himself as a “classical liberal.” Nevertheless, he is critical of the progressive movement and said he considers being politically progressive to be a “mental disorder.” Some would refer to him as politically conservative but I think that description fails to capture Rubin’s thinking and glosses over his thinking.
Using well-seasoned and thoughtful arguments, he is able to convince many that his position that debate is good does indeed work. Rubin expects and gets hosts that are passionate about their positions but also respectfully engage with him and each other. His show has grown “exponentially” and he considers it his duty to enlighten people using this approach.
Socialists don’t like him. That should tell you a lot about what he does.
