Two very bright Americans chew the fat

Intellectual Dark Web contributors Eric Weinstein and Ben Shapiro; both fabulously intelligent and willing to talk about the problems. I don't always agree with Eric but he's really worth hearing because he's intellectually honest, if not somewhat naive at times. (The ads on here are annoying!!) This kind of long-form interview and this media demonstrates how and why the mainstream media is finding its traditional patch and reputation under threat. And what a pleasure to listen to people who respect each other and don't talk over each other and try to shout the other down!!

"Fallen under the spell of magical thinking"! Go Eric!! I absolutely love this stuff. The modern version of The Illuminati. (What say you, Dr. Ferguson?)

Well, at least there are two of us left. ;)

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.

Fortunately there are more than two people in the IDW; people from the ideological Left and Right have found things in common and can discuss these without fear, abuse and interruption. And none is so rusted on in their beliefs that they cannot engage with others and learn something new. I've always admired North American intellectuals and this group is just proving that I was right all along.

A total pleasure.
