The Great Reset and the Doctrine of Domination: A Conversation with Steven Newcomb
The Great Reset before and now.
I want to share the interview I recently did with Steven Newcomb (well not so recently but it took me forever to edit it).
It’s a second interview I did with Steven. In the first one, we focused on his work and the Doctrine of Domination per se. In this one, we discuss today’s Great Reset, viewed through the linguistic tradition of Domination as it was applied to the original people of this land—and also touch upon the Holy Product and the censorship around it.
It was an honor to interview Steven again, he truly is a brilliant intellectual and an impressive human being!
Confession: I meant to post this interview alongside a giant article—but the article is taking me on its own journey, while the interview deserves a full spotlight. So I’ll send the giant philosophical article shortly, and in the meanwhile, please enjoy my long conversation with Steven.
One thing I want to add as an intro is that the interview goes into areas that are not very comfortable (for anyone, possibly, but we went with it, and it came out useful, I think). Human history is a big mess, people tend to do horrible things to each other and sometimes mask control as “help”—and yet, here we are, seeking healing.
Here we are, in the middle of a stupid attempt at yet another unhelpful reform, pressured to heal in order to save ourselves and each other, trying to birth beauty and existential meaning out of this ridiculous situation. I believe that the point of all this is remembering who we are. I believe the point is remembering who we all have been since time immemorial, before all sorts of reformers with ideas showed up. And so may we strive for remembering our connection to mystery, for genuine wisdom and joy—and may we paddle paddle paddle out of the abusive trap and into love. I think it’s the point.
