Vivek Ramaswamy burst onto the American political scene in early 2023, after announcing his presidential campaign (on the Republican side).
I was immediately struck by his thoughtfulness and eloquence, but even more so by his 'radical' policy positions (which I largely support), and the detail with which he is explaining how he will execute them.
Vivek appears to me to be properly diagnosing many of the issues confronting the US (and the world more broadly today), and seems to have a unique courage and ability to articulate what he believes to be the truth, regardless of the forum he is speaking in (and whatever pushback he may receive as a result).
Does he just have his finger on the pulse of the zeitgeist, and is saying what people want to hear?
It doesn't seem like it to me, but of course, the point is for it to not seem like that, and as such, politics is forever a domain that one should be especially sceptical of (and secondary to individual action).
As a result, I invited Jordan Schachtel, an independent journalist who has been critical of Ramaswamy, and Vijay Boyapati, someone who's been on Vivek's podcast and who's been more positive on him, on the show to discuss his candidacy through a 'bitcoiner' perspective.
