i haven't read all of harari's material, but from what i have gleaned, i like him

he's definitely a thinker with an interesting take

yes we need voluntary cooperation/participation to solve some of the challenges we're facing

politics has huge credibility problems, at its worst it's anti-science and the best case is bad science

i have suggestions

===========================================================================
hey this is pretty thought provoking  {#Arrowd}

Punching the Clock, by David Graeber  Harpers


 
A bullshit job—where one is treated as if one were usefully employed and forced to play along with the pretense—is inherently demoralizing because it is a game of make-­believe not of one’s own making. Of course the soul cries out. It is an assault on the very foundations of self. A human being unable to have a meaningful impact on the world ceases to exist.


My new mantra, "They're still paying me. They're still paying me. They're still paying me..."

fair enough.. Camus is my favourite philosopher - and he's dead. so I thought I should stand up for him.

Camus was not interested in convincing everyone else that life is essentially absurd but about finding out how to live with that knowledge. He actually had a lot of respect for human feelings.

Aaah, you of all people should not be getting hung up on the supposed gender of a possessive pronoun.

Unless you're bored and looking for a metaphysical quarrel.
