The face of evil?

I had never heard of Stefan Molyneux before this week, when I watched his 2017 interview with Dave Rubin.

Although his ideas are certain to inflame the PC crowd, I found his arguments coherent and his persona both sincere and sensitive.

Was he putting on an act? I have no idea. But I was astonished when I googled his name to find the following descriptions:

Wikipedia -- Stefan Basil Molyneux is a far-right, white nationalist Canadian podcaster and YouTuber who is known for his promotion of scientific racism and white supremacist views. Molyneux is described as a leading figure of the alt-right movement by Politico and The Washington Post, and as a far-right activist.

Southern Poverty Law Center -- A libertarian internet commentator and alleged cult leader who amplifies "scientific racism," eugenics and white supremacism to a massive new audience.

RationalWiki -- an Irish-Canadian white supremacist political commentator, "philosopher", cult leader, and Internet-media personality who ... also writes regularly for anarcho-capitalist websites.

If someone presents a point-of-view you don't like, respond with facts and logic, not name-calling and guilt by association.

Assuming the worst about others because they promote positions that make you uncomfortable is not a formula for intellectual integrity or social harmony. Passion only serves us when it is supported by truth, and when we hold ourselves accountable to articulate the truth so that even our adversaries cannot refute us.
