Bill Maher kicked off a cultural meme a few weeks ago with a segment on his popular show Real Time where he skewered the cultural left for progressophobia, which he defined as “situational blindness, except what you can’t see is that your dorm room in 2021 is better than the South before the Civil War.” In this episode, I map the idea of progress in our culture. Maher’s comments were widely praised in the mainstream media, from Morning Joe Scarborough on MSNBC (center left) to Peggy Noonan at the Wall Street Journal (center right). Together these represent the modern worldview …

In this episode, I look deeper into the Integral project of ”worldview diversity,” where we seek to befriend, appreciate, and be influenced by people and cultures who inhabit different world-spaces (altitudes of development). Topics I hit on: Alexei Navalny’s heroic, near-death fight for modern values in Russia. “Our people are not perfect, but our culture is superior to others.” Pew research on how Eastern and Western Europeans respond to that statement. How “mean modernity“ blinds us to the deep identity and fulfillment found in healthy traditionalism. Practicing to deepen multi-perspectivalism with individuals and cultures. Plus, I welcome Integral teacher and …

This week I explore an essay published in Israel’s newspaper Haaretz that The New York Times said “shook the Israeli left like an ideological bunker-busting bomb.” In it, Nissim Mizrachi, former head of the department of sociology and anthropology at Tel Aviv University, describes what he calls the blind spot of liberals, who, he says, “do not see themselves as ‘classifiable’ from the outside.” “I think the most blatant phenomenon in world politics today is the resounding defeat of the liberal vision,” Mizrachi says. “It’s a double breakdown: one involving the government, in the sense of the left’s inability to …

Every stage of development brings forth new territories in the evolution of human consciousness and culture. A few days ago we witnessed a move into postmodernity (green altitude) in Oprah Winfrey’s interview with Harry and Meghan, the renegade Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Harry and Meghan are exemplars of postmodernity’s most powerful creed: to relieve human suffering that has been unseen in previous structures … suffering in the collective, with a new dedication to those people and groups who have been previously marginalized or discounted by society, and suffering in the individual, with a heightened awareness of psychic pain, trauma, …

In this episode, I look at the tensions arising among conservative Christians about how fervently to support Trump. 01:23 – Clips and observations from the Jericho march on Washington DC earlier this month featuring evangelical leaders (and Alex Jones), and the backlash it has caused with others in the movement. 21:25 – How mainstream punditry is seeking to explain the seeming paradox of Trump-loving Christians. 35:50 – Bill Bryson and Jack Nicholson demonstrate why the hatred of the left still unites traditional conservatives – and why we deserve it. I hope you enjoy the episode! Announcement:  The Institute for Cultural …
