Episode 12 – Approaching the Field of Dreams

So far, this is one of our favorite episodes. The great and free societies of human history were founded on noble principles. They exhibited similar characteristics at the apex of their virtue, and most often descended into chaos and corruption. Bobby and Jordan explore these ideas, happening upon an exciting metaphor.

What makes a good society?

Just off the cuff we submit these characteristics: Real unity of hearts, spontaneous unity, fun, happy, recognizing dignity of different people, unity against evil, competition allowing people to overcome conflict in a civilized manner, populace educated in good principles, independent moral action, Leaders, culture, TRUTH, investigation of truth, and reconciliation.

What makes a bad society?

FEAR, mob activity, fear of retribution, lies, corporate media, conformity, bombing people into oblivion (pre-emptive war) for no good reason, punching people in the face for no good reason, Managers, [profane] master planning … central planning, creating labels and attacking them (identity politics), virtue signaling, trust the experts, LIES, and censorship.

Correction: Ray Liota did Field of Dreams before Goodfellas.

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”

― Frank Herbert, Dune
