New episodes looks at European / American connection and heritage vs consumerism. I can dig it they mention Faust.

Torture – a centuries old practice. When Francis Fukuyama coined the phrase ‘The End of History’, the West in his view strode triumphant, demonstrating the virtues of democratic capitalism and the integration of peoples into a open and liberal framework over that of repressive government regimes of the Communist Bloc. When the War on Terror began in 2001, however, the United States, once the self-appointed ‘leader of the free world’ managed to demonstrate just how heavy handed it was willing to be in order to ‘liberate’ peoples of the world. In US-occupied Iraq, the Abu Ghraib prison served as a focal point for showing the world its willingness to (openly) use methods of psychological and physical humiliation to perpetuate its dominance.

Like to see them do more on the Vietnam War, Korean War, and post war farceical war crime trials. More on cultural subversion and America First vs American Imperium. The diconomy that's always existed since westward expansion and the post civil war era.

The recent episode on management and taylorism is worth listening to. Really cuts to the heart of what's wrong with trying to apply measurement on things unquantifiable. Unfortunately this idea and things like positivism and shop floor mentalities rule the day.

Myth of 20 C has been deleted by YouTube. In an unusual move they have deleted them from my subscription list so it looks like they never existed.

The recent episodes on Sci Fi and the one with James Lafond are good.

I highly recommend Jay Dyers YouTube channel and his two books . God bless, I'm out.
