Joe Rogan Experience #1295 – Tulsi Gabbard

YouTube has the video Joe Rogan Experience #1295 – Tulsi Gabbard.

I have only had time to watch 30 or so minutes of this, but it seems to be much more in depth than you are likely to see anywhere else. I don’t agree with every minute of what I have seen, but it has been extremely valuable to hear it so far. I am stopping now, or I will be up until 1AM listening to this. I’ll pick up listening to this tomorrow.

As I continued to watch this video it seemed to devolve into silly talk. They were discussing the negative impacts of social media as if these problems hadn’t existed in radio, TV, and newspapers before the age of the computer. They decried the internet focus on controversy and evil social influences, as if before the computer age the newspapers were full of reports of all the people that nothing happened to. The history books are not filled with the stories of the billions of people who ever existed to which nothing remarkable ever happened.

To fault people for talking mostly about the unusual is a silly misunderstanding of human nature and of reality. On the other hand, do they notice all the social media threads about what people just ate or what they just cooked?

There may be nuggets of value in the rest of this video, but I am not going to spend my time looking for them.
