I’ve become increasingly frustrated lately that there’s no easy way to explain what I need to talk about these days.
There is something badly wrong with our dysfunctional modern culture. We have become like blind men following other blind men — and that path leads to us all ending up in a ditch and wondering what happened.
I’ve realized that I can’t keep “dumbing down” some things. There are some ideas that you simply have to learn if you want to have this conversation and if you want to help correct what’s wrong with the culture. And that means we have to confront the fact that our education and our cultural experience has dumbed down much of what we need to learn.
I’m not going to try to explain history or philosophy or anything else complex in this presentation, but I’d like to start making the case for why most of our culture — probably including you — have to give up the shallowness we’ve been taught. And if this isn’t what you want, it’s probably also true that nothing else I’ve said for many months will make a bit of sense to you, either.
