Art was used for thousands of years to reinforce dominant narratives and bolster the legitimacy of the establishment.

In the 20th century art became more dissident and challenging.

Yet, in 2021, "dissident" art reinforces the woke hegemony.

Has art been recaptured?
A clear sign that the woke left has captured all of our institutions can be seen in what remains of "dissident art."

Today's "dissident artist" doesn't challenge the dominant narratives, it merely re-asserts them.
The energy of true dissident art isn't producing the same media as before.

I believe today punk rock energy lives on in social media.

Renegade, DIY, and always on the run, dissident social media creators are the new Sex Pistols, or dare I say, Rage Against the Machine.
It's time for a new punk rock manifesto:…

I took my girls out to dinner tonight.

Our waitress recognized me instantly.

Other wait staff came up to me to say thank you as well.

One Latina lady said, “keep telling the truth, America needs to wake up.”

I was flattered and honored.

And then I #BetOnMainStreet Image
I’ve been recognized in public the last three times we went out.

Our waitress tonight came right up to me and said “you’re Jack Murphy!”

My first reaction was “oh fuck”

The she says,

“I watch you every other Wednesday on @Timcast!”

I guess we aren’t alone in dc.
When other workers came out of the kitchen to tell me to “keep telling the truth” because America needs to “wake up” I was genuinely moved.

People mock social media. “It’s not real life.” It’s not TV!


Social media brought my message to millions of people.

Fantastic informative and thought provoking conversation with @matthewstoller - a true populist on the left.

We trace the development of the Democrats into the anti populist corporate neo liberals they've become.

Fascinating stuff…

@matthewstoller explains how and why the Democrats became what they are today...anti populist, pro corporate, neoliberals who exclude the working class white.

A scathing critique of the left from the left.

Essential listening.

"The essential problem with the Democrat Party is that they've lost touch with their populist anti-monopoly roots."

"When you have corrupted institutions you have to find alternative networks to figure out what's the right thing to do." @matthewstoller
