Survival of The Shittiest: Part I

Survival of The Shittiest: Part I

What are the evolution-honed traits that allowed humanity to rocket to the top of the food-chain? Will they be enough when we're face-to-face with one of the many great filters? In this first part of our two-part episode, "Survival of The Shittiest", we'll explore the fundamental nature of humanity and where we may have taken a wrong turn in respect to fulfilling our true potential as a supra-organism optima. This episode's quote: (note: in this quote, Alex Danco is explaining David Graeber's arguments from his book, "The First 5,000 Years of Debt", and does not necessarily reflect his personal opinions on the matter.)  [...] all debt, especially interest-drawing debt, is intimately related to its enforcement mechanism. [...] when money is a hard, fungible unit of scarcity, enforcement isn’t a matter of trust; it’s a matter of force. When your enforcement mechanism is state-backed violence, lenders and debtors have a pretty different relationship." --- Send in a voice message: Support this podcast:
