Why equality is unhelpful as a political goal.
The channel was created on October 23, 2017 as a way to acknowledge topics related to Internet culture and Pop culture of more recent trends through the use of Philosophical theories. The channel is in the style of the video essay in which edited images, and often segments from other videos and content is referenced by the voice over of the narrator. The creator/narrator in the videos uses the word "Cuck" in the title of his channel as a way to reference the more irreverent internet crowd who swim in the everyday phenomena of excess culture; and, therefore allowing the content to stimulate critical thinking for the viewers.
The creator has shown an acute distinction for Critical thinking prowess in films such as Shrek , American Psycho , and Glitter. He interpolates close reasoning in his explanations of cultural phenomenology as he breaks down the work that is being assessed. His analysis of philosophical ideas and concepts found throughout recent culture are often associated with Hegel, Marxist, and Derridan.
The utilization of different critical theories in his content has shown to give ample explanations of the cultural notions being investigated and analyzed.
By analyzing the Incel through the Hegelian lens, the narrator gives light to concepts that were unseen or not referenced due to the inundation of Jordan B. Peterson's concepts.
