Off The Cuff: The Destruction Of Coherent Ideas

In this week’s Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and James Howard Kunstler discuss:

  • The Shale Oil Booby-Trap
    • Fake prosperity that will tank the markets when it ends
  • Could The US Government Nationalize The Oil Industry?
    • It very well could
  • The Destruction Of Coherent Ideas
    • To fail to plan is to plan to fail
  • What Are We Willing To Give Up?
    • A better future depends on abandoning some of our self-destructive luxuries

In this week’s podcast, Chris and Jim tackle a wide range of issues — from shale oil, to Jeffrey Epstein, wokesterdom, the financial bubble, social malaise, and the future of society. One deficit particularly concerning to Jim is our culture’s inability to have coherent discourse.

If we can’t engage in understanding and intelligently debating with one another, how will we ever devise effective solutions to the many challenges we face?

Another component of the story is that even if you see the financial shenanigans and manipulations succeeding or appearing to succeed for, let’s say, the last ten years since the 2008 problem – it doesn’t mean that there isn’t a lot of destruction going on.

Where it’s happening is the obvious destruction of the middle class as we have known the middle class in an industrial society for about 100 years. There’s a tremendous amount of damage and destruction occurring at the margins of the realm of finance.
