I’ve decided to leave the site up as it stands and a much cheaper plan that wasn’t available last time I checked allows me to keep the podcast up and running for now. There is a lot of great archived information on this site and it would be foolish to take it down.
I apologize for the sporadic posts, but I have been dealing with some health issues these past few weeks. Rest assured I will return!
Today’s podcast is an assortment of articles I have collected over the past few months that I feel I need to address. I will be out of town for the next ten days, but I will return as soon as possible.
I had planned to finish my report on Civilized Man’s Eight Deadly Sins by Konrad Lorenz, but I bit off a bit more than I could chew, so the last part will be coming next week.
The next two sins on Mr. Lorenz’s list are Entropy of Feeling and Genetic Decay. The author makes some very interesting assertions about these two “civilization” diseases that warrant our attention. I hope you find something useful in today’s podcast.
I do apologize that so much time has passed since I last posted a podcast. This was not my intention, but circumstances beyond my control forced me to take a hiatus. On the other hand, looking back on the past year, I needed this time to reflect on all that I had learned up to this point in my investigations.
I begin this second phase of my podcast with another book report. I came across a book called Civilized Man’s Eight Deadly Sins by Konrad Lorenz at a little bookstore in rural West Virginia. Once I finally got around to reading it, I felt I should share the ideas in this book with you. It is a short book, but very dense, so I decided to split it into two podcasts. In this first part, I cover the first three sins according to Mr. Lorenz; Overpopulation, Devastation of the Environment and Man’s Race Against Himself. I explore what I think Mr. Lorenz gets right and what he misinterprets, in my opinion.
To those long time listeners and newcomers, I want to remind you that I have not abandoned my little corner of the Internet. My life here in Hawaii has been chaotic as of late and now I find myself hunting for a new place to live. Needless to say, I haven’t had any time for the podcast or even research. I will be back in a few months. In the meantime, keep thinking for yourself.
