The conversation about local human community, AI, ecology, and narratives to steer by that began in KMO Show 017 concludes here.
KMO and Jim, Your Ad Attacker, host of the Attack Ads! podcast, discuss the books The Absent Superpower: The Shale Revolution and a World Without America by Peter Zeihan and Upheaval: Turning Points for Nations in Crisis by Jared Diamond.
Here's a Vault episode that considers a conspiratorial take on the pandemic response and gives even more serious consideration to the class historical struggle between capitalists and workers over the topic of automation.
First up is the conclusion of the conversation with Jim, your ad attacker, which began in C-Realm Podcast episode 543. Then comes a conversation recorded in Dallas, Texas with Scott and Paul, two friends of the C-Realm who both live near Austin, Texas and who traveled to Dallas to meet up with KMO for EarthX2019. There are a lot of stereotypes about Texas and Texans, few of which are charitable. Scott and Paul flesh out, and, in some cases, repudiate those stereotypes.
