Edward O Wilson approaches it through Chomskyís revolutionary theory in linguistics. Wilson explains the evolutionary changes that would have to take place and why itís not totally impossible. While heís at it he Wilson offers an alternative to Dawkins Selfish Gene theory.

Itís basically a matter of people who are predisposed to a certain manner of doing things being the ones that breed.

So... anarchist fascism? I'm curious about a book you'd recommend.

TBH I'm feeling like an ******* for not reading Chomsky these days though so I gotta read some of that too. I'm feeling political in a way I haven't since I discarded libertarianism years ago and started avoiding politics as a matter of course. It's hard to completely lose faith in a political ideology and still have faith in your ability to interpret politics.

I'm pals with a guy who developed an AI chatbot that basically swings elections. He's had some interesting success with it some different districts throughout the northeast. I'm lulzing at the thought of Beto getting crushed by this stuff, because it is pretty awesome.

From me yes. Not Wilson. Heís not into looking stupid.

When he describes how and why ants and wasps do what they do in the language of evolutionary biology and then starts explaining human social structures in similar terms to me that **** was really ****ing disturbing.

Itís odd because he sees it as hopeful but I think for most people, myself included, being stripped down to pure biology is ****ing horrifying.

You may think youíre ready for it or youíve come to terms with it already but damn - itís like Kafka - but real lol

Populism is neither inherently positive or negative

Thereís a definite negative connotation presently

You can argue the word is being used improperly but thatís about it
