360: C Stands for “Contrarian”


z_as_yet_unusedKMO welcomes SF author, futurist, and contrarian, David Brin to the C-Realm to talk about the themes of his new novel, Existence. Those themes include some long-running areas of interest for C-Realm listeners including the need to balance a sober view of the challenges human civilization faces as we transition from smart animals into beings that must learn to weild the god-like powers in real time with no do-overs. This is a particularly challenging proposition given our tendency toward self-deception, factionalism, and righteous indignation. David champions recipricol accountability, the American genius for compromise, and the idea of becoming good ancestors.

Music by Southside.
