The Great Order

The falsity of "meritocracy," warped incentives, breeding real leadership,

transhumanism providing a utopian siren song...

From the February 21st, 2021 episode of It's Late Night Somewhere,

which is an intimate, radio-style show, something of a window into

a private conversation that sometimes yields novel and useful passages:

In this clip, John asks about different conceptions of time and how these might change our understandings and approaches to some of the conundrums of modern life.
I then share some thoughts that related to the overall episode's themes of architecture, beauty, tensions between tradition and innovation, and how to begin moving towards more healthy and harmonious outlooks and lifestyles.

~ABOUT LEARNING IN PUBLIC~

We are living in a time of tremendous change in the world, perhaps even a transition between epochs. Using our thought and speech to the best we can on this show, we commit to navigate the questions and challenges of such times.

We take a spirit and intention of harmony and holistic thinking as our guide, seeking to avoid many either/or pitfalls that too easily result in confusion, disintegration, and harm.

This does not mean rendering everything limply neutral and “moderate,” for we primarily believe in a harmony between curious openness and strong boundaries.

We lament the loss of meaning, purpose and virtue that many modern people experience, but can also critique older notions whose blind spots got us here, or examine nefarious schemes currently pushing anti-life agendas—even if these are publicly presented as “evolved,” “enlightened,” and “inevitable.”

We can enjoy the spread of ideas, mobility and resources in a more connected world while fiercely advocating for the remarkable distinctions that signify the unique peoples and cultures of earth, of course most apt to address and rehabilitate our own as men of European descent.

We believe in truth, beauty and goodness and see how irony and nihilism are wrecking peoples’ lives.

All the while we insist on a generous spirit where appropriate and keep a lightness in our hearts, for the world certainly doesn’t need any more bitterness.

Please join us if this intrigues you.

Architecture puts one into certain states and can convey a striking sense of a particular locale. This clip is taken from an episode of "Learning In Public" where we focuses heavily on architecture as a means to counteract globalizing tendencies that sully the local and particular.
