In The Ring With Eusebius McKaiser Episode 20 - LOOTING, CRIMINALITY, PROTESTS: HOW SHOULD WE INTERPRET EVENTS IN SOUTH AFRICA RIGHT NOW?

In this edition of In The Ring With Eusebius McKaiser, I offer trenchant analysis of what is going on in South Africa right now. It is, I argue in this podcast, a mistake to interpret the looting as mere criminality and sheer opportunism. There is a complex number of both more immediate and longer-term drivers behind these events and anyone interested in a serious understanding of this crisis must avoid the danger of a single narrative. Instead, as you will hear in this podcast episode, I see these events of the last few days as having deep roots in the steady decline of the South African state. We are facing a legitimacy crisis sponsored in part by the decline of the African National Congress.

On In The Ring With Eusebius McKaiser I tackle all the uncomfortable topics that dominate public debate. With my reputation for fearless debate as a former World Masters Debate Champ, and a background in law and philosophy, you can expect debates on everything from whether or not it is racist for a non-black person to quote the N-word, to questions of how to tackle inequality, whether people are responsible for unconscious biases, the ethics of refusing to be vaccinated, the status of animals, debating books, and much more! The crucial differentiator of this podcast series compared to others is that it is fearless in its debate orientation, and no topic is off bounds! However, my motto is: "You are entitled to be treated with dignity .... but NOT to have your worldview affirmed!"
