Episode 36 - Carl Schmitt & the State of Exception

In what is possibly Stercus Occurrit's most controversial episode to date, the boys tackle political theorist Carl Schmitt, who is best remembered as a anti-Semitic, racist, Nazi prick. We peel back the curtain to reveal more than the pro-genocidal German turd than meets the eye. The boys discuss Carl Schmitt's life and times, his concept of a sovereign and the "exception," his idea of the friend-enemy distinction in politics, and some contemporary applications of his rather terribly aged conservative political theory. All this and more in this episode!
