    Nice choice of interviewee. His book is good too.

    I like this quote best:

    “And thatââ?¬â?¢s how they should be; itââ?¬â?¢s great. Iââ?¬â?¢m a fan of that kind of boring, secular, bourgeois society.”

    Me too! I can buy my excitement on the side.

    Finally got around to reading this. Yeah, that was a cool interview. I particularly liked the part where he said, “What we have is a series of emotional responses to who we find convincing as a leader that were shaped by the emotional responses that were adaptive for hunter gatherers. What weââ?¬â?¢ve realized is that those are frequently rather dangerous for us in modern contexts.”
