Very interesting episode. Some of these points would definitely be addressed by an Andrew Yang presidency I think.

This podcast was just spectacular. Why can't we make this happen??!! One (any) of our candidates should be leading THIS charge.

I find it odd that there has not been more examination of the hypocrisy within most of the Republican party. These people to whom Donald Trump owes a great debt in that they have enabled him to do so much that they would not have tolerated in the past. I almost wish for a Democratic president to take power who is equally as corrupt as Trump to take great advantage of the presidence they are setting by their sometimes public silence and other times vocal defence of corruption. I would take much pleasure in watching the reactions of these hypocrites were a Democratic president, wily and intelligent, were to fully take advantage of their moral ambiguity. While I recognize the partisanship and downfall of this perspective, bring it on! I say - for they have poked the bear!

Regarding impeachment and political bias: if Donald Trump was a Democrat who had advanced all sorts of left wing policies, I would STILL be outrageously embarrassed by his conduct and would STILL absolutely condemn his abuse of power and obvious lawlessness and I WOULD HAVE VORED IN FAVOR OF IMPEACHMENT LONG AGO.

In what way? I put a lot of thought into expressing my perspective and I would be very interested in hearing yours.

I'm surprised that this episode didn't really reference hell at all. As an Evangelical who has recently developed far more moderate political views than those with which I was raised, I sense that fear of God's judgment drives much of Christian conservativism. In fact this fits hand in glove with the psychology of conservatism presented in and earlier episode that focused on the underlying literalism and risk aversion that characterizes conservatives. Conservative Catholics and evangelicals take hell literally and are afraid of that risk and therefore work hard to avoid impurities that may make them objects of God's wrath. (Pornography is tolerated because it is private and therefore doesn't earn you the Scarlett Letter in conservative circles. Poverty in the lives of others is hard to blame on any one person so it doesn't activate the religious impurity sensors that trigger fear of judgment.)

Also enjoyed the Codex Alera for the most part until it was revealed that the protagonist really is the chosen one...and not a commoner with the equivalent of a disability in that world. Too often this undermines the narrative of the common man underdog persevering in the face of adversity. That's why comparatively Tolkien's Frodo stands out as the quintessential underdog on the Hero's Journey.

@cwhitmore54 : I have been listening to your podcast for a good while. Love this subject and find it the most correct. As I had heard this statement "The Christians are not afraid of religious loss but loss of power" They want to make you through laws and their power make you live by their rules. Thanks.

The Name of the Wind was the most boring and overrated book I've ever read. Codex Alera is much better.

I agree with your statement about news coming out of Washington on #MSNBC and Fox. Original thoughts of how one sees an event. Thanks.. I liked it.

love the insights of the externalization of happiness having the unfortunate side effect of turning increased connectivity to the pressures of constant comparison

We don't know that Jussie Smollet lied. We have been told by police that Jussie lied. That's supporting whiteness. So shame on you for that.
