Serving as emperor of Rome from 161AD to 189AD, Marcus Aurelius was considered the last of the five ‘good emperors’, and oversaw a time of relative peace and prosperity at home while stabilizing the empire’s frontiers abroad. Noted for his modesty and dedication to stoic philosophy, Aurelius’ writings serve as a guidepost for many seeking wisdom on life, rule, and what we leave behind. Tonight we are joined by Zach from Logos Revealed to examine Aurelius’ most famous work, ‘Meditations’, and to explore its lessons for leadership in a corrupt modern world.

Wall Street has famously been a place for young and ambitious people looking to make a career in finance, and has been host to numerous boom and bust phases, whether it be the IPO craze of the late 90s or the mortgage derivative boom in the 2000s. In the 1980s, leveraged buyout (LBO) firms like KKR spearheaded the then largest takeover deal ever in the purchase of RJR Nabisco, as chronicled by the bestselling book ‘Barbarians at the Gate’. As these types of takeovers typically involved large amounts of debt and cost cutting layoffs to pay for the debt, LBOs grew unpopular by the 1990s, eventually leading to the industry rebranding under the Private Equity banner. But despite the name change, cheap interest rates following the 2008 financial crisis led to a massive rise in funds of private equity management by over 1,000 times today over 1980, with perhaps a trillion dollars controlled by the top 30 firms of the likes of Blackstone, KKR, and the Carlyle Group. Tonight we are joined by New Yorker Ace Neiderhoff to give us an insider take on this often misunderstood but tremendously significant industry, and also offer guidance to those seeking to make it in one of the toughest and most competitive cities in the world.

Since its founding in 1976, Apple has been at or near the center of personal computing. Led by legendary founder Steve Jobs, who described the company as lying at the intersection between liberal arts and technology, Apple pioneered the introduction of the graphical user interface, the music player, and the smartphone to everyday people around the world. Since his passing, however, the company, led by former operations manager Tim Cook, has delivered strong unit growth and profit numbers, but has not been able to introduce a revolutionary new product or paradigm in the way we think about the world of information technology. To the question of has the soul of the company left the building permanently, we are joined tonight by returning guest Woe, from the excellent Stone Choir podcast, to share his perspectives as an over 15 year Apple veteran on the company’s place in the culture of Silicon Valley and the broader moral issues in the coming era of artificial intelligence.

Mark Twain once quipped, regarding truth in journalism, that “there are lies, damned lies - and then there are statistics.” Interpretations vary, but a common take away is that people lie to others using fancy numbers. This is almost certainly true - but what is explored with tonight’s guest, statistician and professor William M. Briggs, is the tendency for people to deceive themselves by assigning undue authority to complex mathematical models and their practitioners - and not questioning the assumptions that inevitably go into those models in areas such as climate change and the recent COVID scare. In his books ‘Everything You Believe is Wrong’ and ‘Uncertainty’, Briggs examines many of these commonly held fallacies, and we discuss those findings along with his experience in the academic world to understand the implications it has for doing science in an increasingly non-scientific culture.

Economics today is an institutionalized profession, with academic departments, research grants, and millions of practitioners in the finance and government sectors. In the late 18th and early 19th century, however, economists were not part of any formalized profession, and ranged in background from professors of logic and moral philosophy in the case of Adam Smith to dilettantish journalists with wealthy patrons in the case of Karl Marx. Friedrich List, a former German bureaucrat and eventual entrepreneur emigre to America, saw firsthand the important interplay between government and industry, particularly around protective tariffs for developing a manufacturing sector - serving as a potential “missing link” in the body of thought between the extremes of radical laissez faire free markets and top down centrally planned economies. As the world continues on a path towards de-globalization and increasing polarization, List’s system of National Economics provides a guidebook to many developing and developed economies alike that seek to increase their level of independence and sovereignty.

Vladimir Putin recently won reelection as Russia’s president by a wide margin, making him the country’s longest serving ruler since Josef Stalin. Both men have also uniquely presided over their country’s largest-scale conflicts, throwing support to the argument that economic sanctions placed on countries during war only serve to entrench rather than dislodge their leaders. But the long-term sustainability of a war-style command economy remains less clear, with notable examples of North Korea and arguably the Soviet Union itself raising real concerns of how people can fall behind over time without a relaxing of the central authority. Tonight, we are rejoined by Lance, our frequent military expert and contributor to help us unravel some of the mystery of the military and economic machinations of the Putin regime and how it compares to other stratagems in America and around the world.

Many of us on the disaffected political right got here at one point or another through libertarianism, which appeals to those most usually content with doing their own thing. If 2020 taught us anything, however, with COVID lockdowns, riots, and suspicious elections, the powers that be are not only not content with allowing free choice, but are more than willing to use violence to maintain their power. Tonight, Pete Quinones joins us to share his journey through libertarianism and his assessment of the conservative political project, concluding organized political force may be the only way to protect the personal values many of us hold.

The largest country in Latin America - in terms of population, land mass, and economy - is a crown worn indisputably by Brazil. But the history of this land, spanning four timezones and over five centuries of development, is one marked by tumultuous governance and political conflict, with different crowns worn by monarchs, military dictators, and democratic politicians alike, ruling over a teeming population of millions of former slaves, colonists and wannabe conquistadors. Tonight, we are joined by Lance from Lance’s Legion to help us work out the nuances of this complex and fascinating country, as well as impart some of the potential lessons of managing a large and complex demography with high rates of poverty and crime.

Located at the southern end of South America and comprising much of Patagonia, a region known for its ruggedly beautiful, yet empty expanses, Argentina is a country distant geographically as well as one metaphysically often forgotten. That all changed last year when Javier Milei won election to President and perhaps most notably held a rally wielding a chainsaw, promising to slash government bureaucracy and free up the society in an attempt to revitalize the long-struggling economy, plagued for decades by slow growth, chronic inflation, and currency crises. Tonight, we are joined by returning guest Lynn Lockhart, who has family from the land of silver, to help us understand more about Argetina’s history and colorful new president, as well as the implications for radical reform against incumbent systems more broadly.

Tonight we discuss some of this past year’s highlights, starting with the run on Silicon Valley Bank and near repeat of the 2008 financial crisis. We then cover the geopolitical implications of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine mixed in with the attacks in Israel, crisis at the border, and the changing world of technology as AI continues to touch more of our everyday lives. As a bonus, we are excited to welcome back longtime co-hosts Nick and Hank to help us round out the year, and to give us some perspective as what this year may yet bring.

In pagan Germany sometime in the 8th century, legend has it that a Christian monk, who would later become known as Saint Boniface, gathered a tribe of non-believers around him and their most sacred tree. Thought to incite a vengeful bolt of lightning from Thor himself if cut down, Boniface, in front of all who could see, felled the tree with a single chop of the axe, aided by a gust of wind seemingly from another divinity, and no lightning. In that moment, the onlookers were converted to Christianity. Tonight, we are joined by the author of ‘The Boniface Option’, Pastor Andrew, to explore why the analogy of a bold and visceral attack against false idols may be fitting for addressing the troubles of our “trashworld” times.

The world has never lacked for a troubling incident or cause for concern. But there are times when the drumbeats reach a crescendo, and in the case of war, the potential for large scale conflict seems to rise when a hegemon begins declining, and rival powers see their opportunity to increase their share. Ray Dalio, having made his success running the world’s largest global macro hedge fund and authoring several books on the major forces shaping world history, recently raised his estimate on the chance of World War III occurring in the next two years from 35% to 50%. Given how high the stakes are in that outcome, those are not the most encouraging odds. Tonight, we are joined by returning guest Lance to discuss the recent conflicts in the Middle and Near East, as well as the potential for such in the Far East and the general escalation amongst the nuclear armed superpowers.

Even before humans developed metal tools, stonework, jewelry and mineral wealth have been an integral part in human society. With the advent of the industrial revolution, with coal being exploited as a primary energy source for heating and locomotion, even more minerals ranging from copper to iron to aluminum became accessible on a scale never before seen. Now, with fossil fuels such as coal and oil becoming more difficult to source and pressure from environmental concerns causing a search for greener energy, a new frontier in mining for the green economy, ranging from lithium to cobalt, has opened, raising new challenges and opportunities in the never ending search for wealth from beneath.

The world is a complex place, filled with good and evil - and almost everything in between. The challenge of navigating this is that we are all tempted by something that we want, but ultimately will be our undoing. Christians frame this battle between God and Satan, with humans caught in the struggle to choose. What makes this even more difficult is it is not simply a matter of choice, but also of action. To avoid sin, we must resist its lure, but most, if not all, can without help. This is where faith provides solace, and in the final judgement, salvation. Tonight we are joined by two gentleman who have dedicated the search for what is good in the form of the excellent Stone Choir podcast, which explores many of these fundamental issues, and provides a guide to those who have sought a light in these dark times.

Estimates place the amount of the earth’s land area dedicated to buildings and other fixed structures to be no more than 3%. But of that land, nearly half is exclusive to roads and parking structures in some urban areas. This fact, obviously a consequence of the prevalence of the automobile, illustrates the importance of transportation, a key pillar to modern civilization. Connecting people, goods and services has always been important, but as the cost of movement has dropped and the speed has increased, the value of the network has only grown, which Metcalfe defined as proportional to the square of the nodes, or in this case, destinations. As technology pushes us farther and more safely, the era of globalization may very well extend beyond the globe and into the stars.

Australia, a name derived from the Latin for “southern land”, sits as a continent unto itself at the far reaches of the Asian landmass, receiving its first settlers over 50,000 years ago when the ice age connected the two by a land bridge. It was not until the European settlements in the 17th century did Australia have a written record, and also when it started receiving its largest growth in population. When Australia became united as a federated commonwealth in 1901, one of the first acts it passed was the White Australia Policy, favoring European settlement and limitation of the recent Asian, particularly Chinese, immigration and influence. Only until the 1970s did this policy shift towards broader and more open immigration. Tonight, Matthew Grant from the Australian Natives Association joins us to discuss why this shift occurred, and perhaps why a return to the older policies might be beneficial to the people of his country.

In a time of increasing skepticism of globalization, stemming from losses in jobs, cultural heritage, and sovereignty over ones own homeland, nationalism has re-emerged onto the political stage in protest movements and increasingly populist governments. Christian nationalism, focused on the incorporation of church doctrine into a nation and often a sovereign, is not a new concept, stemming at least from the time of the Treaty of Westphalia in 1648, but recently has re-emerged as a potential solution to the social ills many societies face in the West. Tonight we are joined by Woe, co-host of the Stone Choir podcast, to make the case for how and why this might be a good way forward for many of the discontented souls of today.

In 1945 near the end of WWII, US President Franklin Roosevelt, on his way back from the Yalta summit, met on the cruiser USS Quincy in the Suez Canal with Kign Ibn Saud of Saudi Arabia. The meeting, prompted by Roosevelt asking how the United States had outlasted the mighty German war machine, was motivated by the fact that American oil resources fueled the enormous military buildout that went on to eclipse not only the production of Germany but also the output of all other Axis countries combined. Thinking ahead to declining American reserves, Roosevelt correctly saw and successful negotiated an alliance between the US and the kingdom that until recently has undergirded not only the industrial world’s need for energy but also America’s need for further legitimization of the US dollar in an era of large budget and trade deficits which came in the form of the ‘petrodollar.’ Growing from a population of fewer than 5 million in 1960 to over 33 million today, the home to Mecca, the birthplace of Mohammed and Islam and the center of the broader Muslim world, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has had mixed success in transitioning from its ancient heritage to the fabulous wealth provided by oil. It’s state oil giant - Saudi Aramco - is the world’s third largest company as measured by market capitalization, at $2 trillion, but looking ahead, with increased calls for a move away from fossil fuels and the rise of China, the kingdom looks to invest in the future while retaining its past, and hopes to maintain its central role, for good or for worse, in Middle Eastern culture and politics.

Carl von Clausewitz described war as politics by other means. In many ways the reverse could be said, with the modern state in the West seemingly arrayed against its own citizens in a constant battle of misdirection and interference in their lives. Tom Kawczynski, author of ‘Surviving the Fall of America’ and former town manager of Jackman, Maine, has actually run for political office in an attempt to address some of these problems. Tonight, he gives us an insider glimpse into how the system actually works, what we can expect going forward, and some potential solutions to what he sees an an almost inevitable decline of a once great society.

As a show that has primarily focused on geopolitical history, we at the Myth of the 20th Century have not touched on the subject of women as much as others. But given the importance of women to all societies, and especially those facing declining birth rates, existential ennui, and many other social ills seemingly common throughout the developed world, we thought it appropriate to discuss the topic of women in the workplace. Joined by fellow podcaster from MGTOW Chats and American Sun author Lamprey Milt, we delve into the recent ‘Girl Boss’ phenomenon, as well as unfolding developments in the broader office space world as work from home and interest rate hikes potentially plunge the commercial real estate market into another financial crisis.

Soon after the end of the Second World War, the United States and the Soviet Union emerged as ‘superpowers’, leaders of the two primary ideological power blocks across the world’s major continents. After nearly 50 years of competition, the United States emerged victorious, and led an unprecedented era of ‘globalization’ for the next 20 years promoting free trade and relatively open labor and capital markets along with democratically elected governments. With the rise of emerging economies such as India, and the success of China’s state-led capitalism and a resurgent Russia opposing NATO expansion, other countries around the world have taken note, however, as to the potential for new global leadership and development models that differ from America’s. Tonight we are joined by Lance, a veteran and host of Lance’s Legion, a military history and philosophy podcast, to discuss the ramifications for major geopolitical power realignment into the 21st century.

We examine unanswered questions - and questions with dubious answers - of the last century. Our goal is to offer a fresh perspective on topics that still affect the course of events today, and in doing so hopefully offer a counterpoint to the mainstream narrative on history so that we can make more informed decisions going forward.
