Understanding Power, Corruption, Politics, AI, Religion, Tribalism & Free Speech | Sam Harris PT 1
Join me for a conversation that is going to push some buttons and shine light on the realities of society, social media and the current human condition. From his viral TED Talk to his controversial takes on religion, Sam Harris is renowned for his work in philosophy, neuroscience, and atheism, making you rethink everything you thought you knew. Together, we dive into the heart of our current sociopolitical climate, power, corruption, religion and free speech. We raise piercing questions about media influence, echo chambers, and the rising tide of conspiracy theories. Can we stop the rising wave of irrationality and evil? And what role does consensus play in our understanding of major events? This two part episode invites you to consider the role of information overload and social media dynamics in shaping our worldviews. Become part of the discussion as we unpack the complex layers of today's society. We uncover the breakdown of sensemaking and the urgent need for consensus is imperative in understanding and responding aptly to major events. It's an eye-opening examination you won't want to miss. Are you ready to step out of your echo chamber and confront reality head-on? In part one of this episode we specifically unpack why: Twitter is the wrong place for useful conversation. The truth is no longer the truth and our trust in experts has been shattered. Freedom of Speech Under Fire: Is Our Right to Speak Up Facing Extinction?
