This week on the Renegade Report Jonathan and Roman debate whether the mainstream media is willingly malevolent or just blindly incompetent, why it is that Cyril Ramaphosa gets the benefit of context whilst others don’t, and how partisan politics in the age of #MeToo threaten the job prospects and lives of far more people than just Brett Kavanaugh.More Info
Member of Parliament and the Democratic Alliance’s Head of Policy, Gwen Ngwenya is this week’s guest. Gwen discusses the DA’s approach to expropriation without compensation, who actually constitutes the so-called base, and what it means to be liberal in a South African context. Jonathan pushes back against what he perceives as mixed messaging from the official opposition, and Roman explores the leadership situation in the party.
British conservative and LSE student Sebastian Shemirani joins the show from London this week. Sebastian discusses the political situation in the UK amidst Brexit, his evolution from libertarianism to conservatism, and why he believes conservative values make life worth living. Jonathan queries whether the conservative movement is undergoing an evolution amidst an environment which promotes all cultures as equal. The conversation explores the ascendent nature of socialism despite its repeated failures, the innate problem with equality, and the naive belief that government can solve all problems.
