The day before this week’s US presidential election one of my favorite public intellectuals, Sam Harris, released a podcast where he announced a breakthrough in his understanding of what had heretofore been a mystery: the appeal of Donald Trump to his followers. His revelation: Trump offers what no priest can credibly offer: a total expiation of shame. His personal shamelessness is a kind of spiritual balm. Trump is fat Jesus. He’s grab-them-by-the-pussy Jesus. He’s I’ll-eat- cheeseburgers-if-I-want-to Jesus. He’s punch-them-in-the-face Jesus.  How painfully partial and depressing is Harris’s denigration of the 30% of the population who love Trump, and the 47% …

With less than a month left in the campaign, Trump, knocked back with Covid, stokes his base with new cries about “the Russia hoax”. Meanwhile Joe Biden, up in the polls, goes to Gettysburg to talk about faith in “One America.” In this episode I share my observations on another week in the evolution of American politics.   The post The Autocrat and the Democrat appeared first on The Daily Evolver.

The first debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden is over – and I didn’t start drinking! In this episode, I show how an integral view helps us see the debate for what it is instead of a defective version of “what it should be”. Then I look at some of the issues the candidates addressed, and how together they moved the ball. By the way, I hope you’ll join me for my live show every Wednesday at 1pm US Mountain Time. The Daily Evolver Live is hosted by IntegralLife – and now simulcast to my Facebook page! As always, I …

This is the first in a series of articles examining events that may occur in the near future. Events that would define the futures that come after them. I call such moments “cusps” because decisions made during these critical moments effect the subsequent unfolding of the future in profound ways.While the fictional events in this article are by no means certain to occur, I consider them likely enough to make anticipating the implications of each branch at the cusp worth thinking about.The Battle of PottstownRPX news: July 28, 2017 5:25pm EDT Pottstown PennsylvaniaLate this afternoon, gunfire erupted during a pro-Trump rally in …
