David Gornoski starts the show by commenting on the news surrounding Ghislaine Maxwell, Kanye West, and Roger Stone. We need to see the hidden scapegoats in our culture, says David; the media with its negative feedback loop tries to make this impossible for us. What does it mean when someone like Kanye has to delete a tweet because of mob backlash? Part of dealing with this scapegoat culture involves courageously telling the truth. "You don't flinch when you're dealing with the mob." Is it the fault of liberty that we have a consumerist culture? The problem, David points out, is that we have an economic system that empowers the mob and rewards wickedness. Listen to the full episode for David Gornoski's epic refutation of pro-crowd economics and culture.
