Are contrarian public intellectuals the new rock stars?

Tanveer AhmedRebel Commentator

Travis Pangburn is the CEO of Pangburn Philosophy, which brings together leading contrarian public intellectuals for debates on science, politics and culture. To the surprise of many, these debates often fill venues which were once the domain of rock stars.

Travis isn't that surprised, however. He says, "It's become popular to think," something borne out by the crowds who come out to hear the likes of Jordan Peterson, Sam Harris or Douglas Murray at his events.

In this interview he shares his vision, why he has received death threats, and how the hard left orthodoxy threatens us all.

Among some circles, yes. They’re definitely “rock stars”. Telling people what they want to hear is popular, who’da thunk it? Of course, being “rock stars” means the fan club rarely asks hard questions of them, which is largely how they get away with saying what they do.

Does there need to be a you tube ad every three minutes? At this rate, the rebel will earn a million dollars by the end of the week.
