His audio is on all the usual apps/services. ...more to the point here, econtalk is a format I like and would listen to anyway without having to talk myself into diving ...

It's almost like no one has realized Peterson is basically the Joseph Campbell of the Millennials.

This is a comment he made on reddit so nuanced and footnoted it ain't. I don't know if he took issue with the message, so much as pointed out that yes you can infer a political statement from it. And if it's explicitly political then is it compromised by insincerity in the message? Is a campaign ad ...

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

My point is that if you have to salt your process with concern for ROI, corporate image, and the unwillingness to offend people who agree with you slash buy your art, you end up with something that's not quite art, but also cannot really be a true statement of any particular, sincere, political valu...

Is an issue of the NYT art? Is it political propaganda? I don't think his point is strong or relevant, but I don't know that he's flat out wrong. Let's look at the top 10 books on "The Greatest Books" and see how it lines up. Don't quibble about the order or if they're the right top 10, but they're...

If Frozen isn’t art, it’s becsuse it’s a corporate consumer product, not because it’s political propaganda.
That's my take.
I don't see how either disqualifies it from being art.

What’s a representative thing of Petersen I could read to quickly get a gist of his actual perspective. I have listened to his lectures, but not read much. Check his website, maybe try one of the first 6 of the numbered series (Tragedy vs. Evil, Necessity of Virtue, Religion-Meaning-Science-Truth, ...

Stephen Miller is basically what I imagine a Batman villain to be like at his day job. I always thought he was more of a Stephen King villain. Specifically, Andre Linoge. You spelled "Craig Toomy (as played by Bronson Pinchot in the 1995 teledrama adaptation of King's short story "The Langoliers)" ...

No clue, but if company ownership is the line, then pretty much every airline and car company qualifies since the employees unions are shareholders as well. Until last December, GM had a UAW guy on their board. I guess I meant operate a business then. But there are lots of companies where the emplo...
