Niall Ferguson interviewed by John Anderson




I watched this entire interview last night and highly recommend it as being worth your time. In it Niall covers topics discussed in the forum such as Trump, the rise of populism and decline of public trust in the west, AOC and the increasing interest in socialism, censorship, Brexit, “woke” (SJW influenced) capitalism, and the future of China (both economically and it’s geopolitical aims for the future).

He drinks some Scotch whisky so it gets even more interesting as he loosens up increasingly towards the end.

One thing he doesn’t really get into much (or skirts around the edges of) that we discuss here often are demographic changes (i.e. driving the decline in trust and increasing political divisiveness) and I suppose that may be his blind spot. (This is typical of many boomers.) Nevertheless, this is very informative as he is very intelligent and well-spoken. This is the kind of stuff Youtube is great for in my opinion, content that normally wouldn’t be seen on American television (too long and academic).

If only you knew how bad things really are.

His wife is probably why he won't discuss demographics

A picture of him and his wife:

She's the Somali dissident Hirsi Ali who fled Islam and now the regressive left hates her for criticizing it as an otherwise almost invulnerable 3rd world woman of color on the progressive stack.

Talking about demographic change would probably cause awkwardness at home.

She appears to have a different skin shade/tone than Illhan Omar. I wonder if they are from different warring tribes/ethnic groups.

Ferguson is the Rockefeller family biograher so takes what he says with a grain of salt
