573: The Long Revenge

572: Fully Automated Luxury Communism

KMO welcomes Professor Nicholas Kiersey to the C-Realm to talk about the guiding principles that could lead technological humanity to a post-scarcity, post-capitalist existence in which nobody has to toil, and everyone has everything they need to live a fulfilling and dignified life. Seem unlikely? Prof. Nick isn't here to argue for the technical feasibility. He's here to clear away the conceptual obstacles to envisioning such an existence.

Both KMO and Prof Nick are science fiction fans, and they can both be found in a weekly discussion of SF on Clubhouse: https://www.joinclubhouse.com/club/sci-fi-politics

571: Men Need Not Apply

KMO talks with First of Incelmatics about the reasons why so many young men see no hope of finding girlfriends, much less getting married or starting families. It seems like women have all of the power in online interactions and in academicĀ and corporate settings. Young men are increasingly demoralized, cynical, desperate and, in some instances, willing to go out in a blaze of violent infamy. This episode contains no proposed solutions.

You can find a longer version of this conversation on YouTube.

570: Pathologies of Powerlessness

The Soul of Left Twitter

KMO welcomes Ben Burgis back to the C-Realm Podcast to talk about the themes of his most recent book, Cancelling Comedians While the World Burns: A Critique of the Contemporary Left. Ben is definitely on and for the political left, but he doesn't like the way leftists unthinkingly adopt a capitalist realist mindset and see their primary agency in punishing the heretics (or the careless) in their own ranks.

569: Anecdotes Trump Data

I see discarded masks on the ground all the time now.

KMO talks with Dr. Steven Vannoy about the psychological effects of extended mask wearing, particularly on children, and the neurological rewards that mask shaming produces. It feels really good to think we're in the right. Later, KMO reads and responds to an email from Bob Brown about dangers of taking a vaccine that has been rushed to market without the usual battery of clinical trials.
