Podcast 1_21 - The Deception of Progress

In "The Deception of Progress," I talk about how the ideas of advancement and progress in society can be misleading, and I highlight a few lines by Emerson on the subject.

this podcast was great. you brought up ways to question the idea of "progress," but I appreciated how you didn't let it simply be a "hot button" issue to yell about - it's hard to hear someone when that's all that's done.

And the Emerson quotes were amazing! It is a wonder how well he and Thoreau's words fit for some of our modern-day circumstances. I truly wonder what their take on it would be.

Thanks for producing the podcast.

Thank you very much!

Yes, Emerson and Thoreau are amazing. I love writers who wrote stuff that's universal, stuff that we can so easily relate to today, without being too stuck in the time, too contextual.
