When we transitioned away from the hunter-gatherer lifestyles of our ancestors, we began a process of extricating ourselves from the niche in which we evolved biologically. Today we welcome back return guest Dr. Andrew Shmookler, to explain why it is only a matter of time before our civilization destroys itself unless we drastically change our current mode of operating.
In this conversation, we cover some of his big ideas around some of the most noteworthy crises that are having catastrophic consequences across the world, and take an honest look at the evolution of civilization that got us here. From climate change to Donald Trump to social media, no stone is left unturned here today.
Our systems are broken, and from a political, economic, and environmental standpoint, we need to do things differently in order to make them whole again. And we need to do those things with urgency.
