Charles Eisenstein returns to the C-Realm Podcast to talk about the evolution of his thinking in his new book, The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is possible. He and KMO discuss how any seemingly objective metric that we use in pursuing a more just, sustainable and egalitarian world encodes our biases and justifications for existing power relationships and thus never brings about the world with think and hope it will. Charles explains why he sees the culture of American anti-intellectualism on the political right as coming from a place of valid rebellion, and how no course of action will achieve what we want it to unless it starts with an acknowledgement of the grief we feel over the wound of self-rejection.
