Zero Books: Why We Should Engage with Conservative Rebels


Too often the left fails to engage with conservative critics of modernity and this failure allows right-wing tropes and concepts to go unchallenged. For instance, if only the right will address the way social alienation creates a sense of meaninglessness and instability, then only the right will reach people who long for meaning and stability. Further, not answering the strongest arguments from our ideological opponents but merely denouncing them leaves us defenseless when our social authority wears out.

This Zero Books podcast is dedicated to Mark Fisher. It is a response to the lectures and videos of University professor and anti-PC youtube star Jordan Peterson.

Hi there.

I bet you've seen some great "films for action" that aren't in our library yet. 

Why not add that documentary or video directly to our library? Half of our best content was added by members. Submissions just need to be non-fiction, embeddable (like from Youtube or Vimeo), and related to activism or changing the world in some way. 

Here are some more tips on adding videos. We'd love you to become a regular contributor!
