Fascinating talk. Loved studying astronomy in university. He talks about how stable the last 8000 years have been.

ha!! I was saying much the same 6 months ago. "CO2 is the most important food for life. Everything is carbon-based on this planet. Organic chemistry is the chemistry of carbon which is the chemistry of life... Anybody with basic science, or a grade 12 education should be able to understand that. ... yet we are now teaching that CO2 is a pollutant which gives people the impression that its toxic."

.. "real dialogue isn’t about talking to people who believe the same things as you. Social media doesn’t teach us to dialogue because it is so easy to avoid controversy"
The difference between a community and a network is that you belong to a community, but a network belongs to you.
This is a fascinating little point for us who've invested so much personal and professional capital online, but the broader article is much more valuable than just that.

I've not come across Zygmunt Bauman before, so I cannot say much about his theories and previous work. But the interviewer references his work on liquid modernity in which, "all agreements are temporary, fleeting, and valid only until further notice." This is something that taps deeply into conversations I've had with others. I find this liquidity the most devastating aspect of modernity in part because so many people find it so desirable.

One person's bug might be another person's feature, I suppose.
