A necessary detour in this series, after my discovery of Jordan Peterson. This presentation is a rant-esque monologue that hopefully becomes more calm and collected as it goes on, interspersed with relevant media clips. Thank you to everyone who sent me this video; it began a very educational week.

Peterson's repeated warning that "violence is lurking" is the result of a combination of observations of the current discourse with four decades of experience studying and teaching about fascism and Marxism.

What This Series Is About:
Political thinking is often quick thinking.

Thinking quickly is is an evolution-driven feature that was once necessary for our survival. But in a vastly more complex world than the one our species grew up in, this mode of thought is often dangerous and destructive. Look around.

Sometimes some people, even libertarians, use mental shortcuts to arrive at faulty conclusions, and then engage in a process of rationalization for those conclusions.

This series will combine observations of the left and pro-Trump right over the last year with the valuable lessons from Daniel Kahneman's book Thinking, Fast and Slow. The goal is utilize examples of thinking errors to avoid making them ourselves, often without even noticing.
