Greetings to all of my readers. I’ve been quiet for a week or two here, because I’ve been away speaking, first in Romania and then in old London town. This has delayed the next essay in my series, but it will be arriving with subscribers next week, now that I am back at my desk.
In the meantime, some of you might be interested in this short talk I gave in London last week, at the Unherd club, in response to a question they posed me: ‘What do we do when there’s nothing left to conserve?’ It gave me a chance to try and distill the essnece of some of what I’ve been arguing here into twenty short minutes. The talk was followed by a two-hour disucssion with Mary Harrington, and the the audience, which was very fruitful. If that’s posted online soon I’ll share it with you also.
If you’d prefer the written version of the talk, which has fewer ‘ums’ in it, you can find that here.
More from me soon. Enjoy the spring.
Just thought as I read this: "Eat the fruit. It’s your right. You’re worth it!"
- Satan was the first advertiser, and we have been plagued with constant (demonic - you are worth it, you need more, you are incomplete without this) advertising ever since.
Many thanks for the distillation. Extremely helpful and shareable!
