On today’s podcast, I finish my report on Konrad Lorenz’s book, Civilized Man’s Eight Deadly Sins. The last two sins are The Break with Tradition and Indoctrinability. I hope you find something useful to ponder and share with like-minded people.
Since 9/11/2001, we’ve been in a state of perpetual war, much like the citizens of Oceania in Orwell’s, “1984”. War causes confusion, apathy and ultimately obedience on both sides of the conflict. But our leaders are simply following the New American Century agenda fleshed out in 1992 and 1998 by technocrats like Wolfowitz, Cheney and Rumsfeld. The reasons for the invasion has less to do with oil and resources than with submerging the Middle East into the same corrupt economic and cultural system that rules our lives in the West.
