The working class is exploited just as much in communism as capitalism. The good thing about capitalism is the sky is the limit. Hard work is rewarded with wealth.

I recently cut my cable and began using podcast as my form of entertainment and news. I find your podcast interesting and easy to listen to i have never really studied philosophy unlike my brother who is a professional of philosophy at Bowden University im guessing he would say your style is to simplify but im a simple person so i will keep listening thanks

Well that was the most depressing thing that I've heard in a very long time.

This critique of Liberalism only made me appreciate it more. Of course it's not perfect - nothing is - but as with capitalism and democracy, it's the worst system... apart from all the others.

Intrograted Great comment. I wanted to praise Steven for taking this very "hot potato" on. Additionally brave for not including a running rebuttal. That's the maturity and sophistication that philosophy allows - make the case as strongly as possible and provoke thought in response. I did find myself wanting to go and watch some Gene Roddenberry classic Star Trek though as a palette cleanser after this. Can global governance on classical liberal grounds really work and still espouse some coherent ethics (and dare I say "narrative" - recognising the Peterson trigger here, apologies Steven) that are truly pan-human and something that we would fight for (even though the "enemy" in that context might be nature or extraterrestrial)? I don't know the answer to that, but it's a sweet dream. Or perhaps it isn't. Maybe that's just proving Schmitt's thesis on a planetary scale. Hope we do get some further discussion in later episodes.

one argument that he hasn't he talked about it is that the animals we eat, don't have the brain capacity to really have emotions and so they don't really have Sentience and or phsycolgy so they can feel pain but there would not be a phsycological damage so they don't have any atatchment to life and or atachment to eachother because they dont really have a purpose in life , they cannot really have achevements or will to live because they don't cannot have complex thoghts so when killing an animal for food dosn't have any negative effect because you killed somthing that couldn't affect the well being of anything but you have caused acctually a good effect because you have benfited a human (which in it self is a positve thing) which could do things that are more benefical than that animal could ever do. so killing an animal would not cause any negative effect but a good effect so it will not be imoral to do because it has no negative effect but a good one.
