A video version of this interview is available here.
Our program begins with a discussion of how Kyle’s personal experiences, his formal academic training in law, and a deep appreciation for how public universities work, have allowed him to successfully defend the constitutional rights of Alt-Right activists as an attorney. Henrik goes on to inquire about how Kyle came to the Alt-Right. Along with his academic and personal experiences, Kyle refers to the works of James Burnham; and a volume of essays edited by the late Sam Francis that had a profound effect on him. Henrik and Kyle go on to discuss many other topics including the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville and its consequences; the extreme violence of Antifa and conservatism’s failure to address it; the origins and near-ubiquity of communist thought in the United States; the malign nexus of communism and capitalism; the Ashford House Antifa assault incident; Kyle’s own legal institute: Foundation For The Marketplace Of Ideas (FMI); and the ability of cryptocurrencies to bypass hostile banking institutions and finance White advocacy.
