|title=Reconstructing The Mystical Feminine From The Ashes Of “The Feminine Mystique”
Somewhere on the road between Stalingrad and Forever21, something essential got misplaced amidst the bathos. [[Eric Weinstein|Eric]] works through a bottle of Red wine on air with social, literary and artistic theorist [[Anna Khachiyan]] (co-host of the explosive and popular [[Red Scare Podcast|Red Scare]] podcast) to find out what is brewing on the anti-woke Left among the intellectual daughters of [[Camille Paglia]]. Anna takes us through her project of the reconstructed feminine combining irreverent intellectual dominance with a return to valuing motherhood informed by her claims on Soviet & American heritage. The intellectual foundation of the intersectional “oppression Olympics” and reparations discussion is further dissected amidst the twin specters of the Armenian & Jewish genocides which mysteriously appear not to register at all with today’s progressives.
