This week I welcome Curt Jaimungal and Desh Amila, two filmmakers who have produced Better Left Unsaid, a new documentary about the rise of Left-wing extremism in the United States and across Western nations. We discuss various points from the documentary and our mutual concern about what we see as radicalized behavior on the part of some on the extreme Left. There is a lot to unpack and learn from this and I hope you enjoy our conversation as much as I did.

Better Left Unsaid is an independent documentary that explores the dangerous tactics of extremism across the Western political landscape. For many, extreme right-wing ideologies are easily recognized by overt racism, ethno- nationalism, white supremacy, and the like. The extreme left, on the other hand, takes on a more philosophically nuanced position, which some argue is no less harmful, but often takes on a more understated form in public discourse. Confronting, impactful and reflective, Better Left Unsaid leads viewers on a nuanced exploration of the West’s past and current political disposition, which is often overlooked in classrooms and the mainstream media alike.
