Statistics work for objective arguments but a human connection is vital for caring in the first place, the filmmaker says.

Controversial conservative filmmaker Lauren Southern has challenged a major conservative talking point in a new video as she attempts to re-emerge into the spotlight and rehabilitate her career.

Southern is currently preparing to sue Patreon for kicking her and her patrons from the platform following successful lawsuits from other conservative influencers against the company in 2020. She has also expressed concerns over Wikipedia's description of her, which often used as a citation in references to her in the Australian media.  

Southern published a documentary called Crossfire last year exploring the topic of police brutality in America and has continued to produce a host of arguments to convince the conservative right to embrace, rather than turn its back on culture.

In the twenty minute video uploaded to her channel, Lauren Southern challenged the long held mantra of Ben Shapiro: facts don't care about your feelings.

Southern presents an argument that isn’t entirely meant to invert it wholesale. Although she points out how right-wing figures like Charlie Kirk stagnate public dialogue for leaning too hard on Shapiro’s slogan.

Instead her approach argues for a middle ground to undo the sociopolitical hegemony of the us vs. them tribalism polarization. A persistent mention throughout the video is that society won’t progress if people with opposing viewpoints either shudder at the mention of an inconvenient fact or laugh when someone wants to discuss how they feel.

"A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag," Lauren says in quoting Saul Alinsky's 12 Rules of Radicals.

There’s a primitive underlying emotional soul that guides decision-making, Lauren argues in closing.
