"The Times They Are a-Changin’"

"The Times They Are a-Changin’"
by Addison Wiggin

"This week on TWS: My good friend, James Howard Kunstler. Jim is a prolific author of both fiction and non-fiction books, a fellow bootleg podcaster and a serial blogger. He was a former writer at Rolling Stone Magazine. His 2008 novel, "World Made By Hand", was the first in a series of fiction novels imagining an American future post-oil.

His latest book is titled: "Living in the Long Emergency: Global Crisis, the Failure of the Futurists, and the Early Adapters Who Are Showing Us the Way Forward." All of his work is hosted on his website: Clusterf*ck Nation. In this Session we jammed about…

Jim’s book “The Long Emergency” juxtaposed against Superabundance, by our guest last week, Gale Pooley. Peak-oil versus “superabundance”; “mitigators” vs “early adapters”.

“Mass Formation Psychosis” – or what Jim likes to call “mind-f**kery” – and how it pertains to today’s crises... COVID lockdowns… Ukraine and the threat of nuclear war… broken supply chains… inflation… and the crumbling stock market.

We also discuss the de-industrialization of the Western World by the World Economic Forum… and our political and corporate leaders’ “techno-narcissism”! You can watch the full Session here:
Full screen recommended.
Follow your bliss,"
