Curt Jaimngal is the co-creator (with Desh Amila) of the documentary film, "Better Left Unsaid".

The film shines a light salient cultural issues that are difficult to discuss in a balanced way (at least publicly): namely, the radical arms of both left and right wing politics. "Better Left Unsaid" explores leftist social justice theory and how it turned into censorship and orthodoxly, as well as right-wing nationalism racism and violence.

In the film, Jaimungal explores history and discusses what has happened, previously, when these cultural frameworks have been left unchecked and were allowed to influence policy. He also offers a window into his own mind-- how he thinks about and makes sense of these issues, and what any given person can do about them.

Today Curt and I discuss these topics in detail, as we explore ways to be a thinking and constructive citizen. You'll see that his thoughts and beliefs are well-researched but they're also fluid; changeable. He struggles with his own ontological sense-making and takes no shortcuts when discussing difficult issues. He argues (at least tacitly) that struggling with an internal dialectic is a crucial process for an individual who wants to be a critically-thinking and relevant sense-maker. I enjoyed the discussion and I hope you will too.
