“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms… And the impervious shelter, beneath which it has prospered.”

Didactic Mind, Ep 76: War Games

This week’s episode is all about game theory and its profound and powerful application to politics. I use the lens of game-theoretic understanding to provide insights into why the Right keeps losing against the Left. As I point out in the podcast, the reason is...

Didactic Mind, Ep 64: The Hand of Mammon

In this week’s podcast, I discuss the financialisation of markets and the extremely detrimental effects that this has had upon the real, productive economy. I go over some of the academic reasons offered up for the “crowding out” of the productive...

Hot air and unicorn beams

Michael Shellenberger is a pretty well known name to us on the Hard Right by this point. He was, and in many ways remains, your typical Leftist Greenie – which is to say, he was a watermelon. Green on the outside, blood-red on the inside. He has been involved in...

Didactic Mind, Ep 23: Mythbusting

In this week’s episode, I discuss and dismantle some of the myths surrounding the origins of the Great Depression, the ways in which it unfolded – from the idea that Herbert Hoover was some sort of “do-nothing President”, to the even sillier...

Didactic Mind, Ep 22: A New Hope for the Forgotten Man

In this week’s podcast I address a wide range of subjects, from the ridiculous and frankly overhyped estimates of Corona-chan’s mortality rate, to the dangers of taking epidemiological models too seriously, to the different ways in which societies have...

Hope dies last

The Russians are a stout and stolid people – quite literally in many cases, given their heavily potato- and bread- and vodka-based diet – and they are not easily given to panic or hysteria. They have a rather grim sense of humour which you can see...
