The Network State: Chapter 2 (Prologue) - #121

Our history is the prologue to The Network State. This is not obvious. Founding a startup society as we’ve described it seems to be about growing a community, writing code, crowdfunding land, and eventually attaining the diplomatic recognition to become a network state. What does history have to do with anything?

[jonathan_kogan]: Going live immediately what's up
everybody welcome to The Jonathan Kogan Show i'm your

[jonathan_kogan]: host Jonathan Kogan we got chapter two
today of the audio book The Network State

[jonathan_kogan]: super crucial material fantastic book creating an
audio book because the audiobook doesn't exist

[jonathan_kogan]: Balaji won't get back to me so
I'm taking upon myself to create the audio

[jonathan_kogan]: book chapter by chapter as in between
the podcast episode so if you haven't subscribed

[jonathan_kogan]: subscribe to john the hogan show if
you want to donate Patreon dot com forward

[jonathan_kogan]: slash ownership economy you can donate there
you can check out the YouTube channel and

[jonathan_kogan]: Rumble but this is chapter two and
let's get into it all right and by

[jonathan_kogan]: the way my vocabulary is very limited
so if I mispronounce words or if they're

[jonathan_kogan]: too big I might just and skip
it im gonna do my best I'm gonna

[jonathan_kogan]: do my best i heard chapter one
was okay there we go chapter two history

[jonathan_kogan]: as trajectory our history is the prologue
to the network state this is not obvious

[jonathan_kogan]: founding a start of society as we've
described it seems to be about growing a

[jonathan_kogan]: community without code crowd funding land and
eventually attaining the diplomatic recognition to become a

[jonathan_kogan]: network state what does history have to
do with anything and by the way if

[jonathan_kogan]: you are watching this on rumble or
on youtube i'm going to share my screen

[jonathan_kogan]: so you can follow along and now
i just fixed it here we go let

[jonathan_kogan]: me continue the short version is that
if a tech company is about technological innovation

[jonathan_kogan]: first and a company culture second a
start up society is the reverse it's about

[jonathan_kogan]: community culture first and technological innovation second
and while innovating on technology means forecasting the

[jonathan_kogan]: future innovating on culture means probing the
past but why well for a tech company

[jonathan_kogan]: like space ex you start with time
and variant laws of physics extracted from data

[jonathan_kogan]: laws that tell you how adams collide
to interact with each other the study of

[jonathan_kogan]: these laws allow you to do something
that has never been done before seemingly proving

[jonathan_kogan]: that history doesn't matter but the subtly
is that these laws of physics in code

[jonathan_kogan]: a highly compressed form highly compressed form
the results of intermutable scientific experiments you are

[jonathan_kogan]: learning from human experience rather than trying
to re derive physical law from scratch touch

[jonathan_kogan]: mars we stand on the shoulders of
giants for a star of society we don't

[jonathan_kogan]: yet have eternal mathematical laws for society
history is the closest thing we have to

[jonathan_kogan]: a physics of humanity it furnishes many
accounts of our human actors call lie to

[jonathan_kogan]: interact with each other the right course
of historical study in codes in compressed form

[jonathan_kogan]: the results of intermutable social experiments you
can learn from human experience rather than re

[jonathan_kogan]: deriving societal law from scratch learn some
history so as not to repeat it that's

[jonathan_kogan]: a theoretical argument an observational argument is
that we know that the technological innovation of

[jonathan_kogan]: the renaissance began by rediscovering history and
we know that the founding fathers deeply about

[jonathan_kogan]: history in both cases they step forward
by drawing from the past so if you're

[jonathan_kogan]: a technologist looking to blaze a trail
with a new start of society that establishes

[jonathan_kogan]: plausibility for historical study is important the
logistical argument is perhaps the most compelling think

[jonathan_kogan]: about how much easier it is to
use an eye phone than it was to

[jonathan_kogan]: build apple from scratch to consume you
can click a button but to produce it

[jonathan_kogan]: necessary to know something about how companies
are built similarly it's one thing to operate

[jonathan_kogan]: as a mere citizen of a pre
built country and quite another thing to create

[jonathan_kogan]: one from scratch to build a new
society it would be helpful to have some

[jonathan_kogan]: knowledge of how countries were built in
the first place the logistics of the process

[jonathan_kogan]: and this again brings us into the
domain of history why history is crucial you

[jonathan_kogan]: can't really learn something without using it
one day of emersion with a new language

[jonathan_kogan]: beats weeks of book learning one day
of trying to build something with a programming

[jonathan_kogan]: language beats weeks of theory too in
the same way the history we teach is

[jonathan_kogan]: an applied history a crucial tool for
both the perspective president of a star of

[jonathan_kogan]: society and for their citizens shareholders and
staff it's something you'll use on a daily

[jonathan_kogan]: basis why history is how you win
the argument think about the sixteen nineteen project

[jonathan_kogan]: or the grievance studies departments and universities
or even a news people newspaper profile of

[jonathan_kogan]: some unfortunate you might be mining crypto
currency but the folks behind such things are

[jonathan_kogan]: mining history that is many thousands of
people are engaged full time in offensive archeology

[jonathan_kogan]: the excavation of the recent and distant
past for some useful incident they can write

[jonathan_kogan]: up to further demoralize their political opposition
this is the scholarly version of go ing

[jonathan_kogan]: through someone's old twits it's weaponized history
history as opposition research you simply can't win

[jonathan_kogan]: an argument against such people on pure
logic alone you need facts you you need

[jonathan_kogan]: history history determines legality we denote the
exponential improvement in transistor density over the post

[jonathan_kogan]: war period by moore's law we describe
the expoential decline in farmasutical an efficiency during

[jonathan_kogan]: the same period as rooms as more's
law in reverse that is over the last

[jonathan_kogan]: several decades the f d a somehow
presided over an enormous hike in the cost

[jonathan_kogan]: of drug development even as our computers
and our knowledge the human genu vastly improved

[jonathan_kogan]: similar phenomena can be observed in energy
where energy production has stagnated in aviation where

[jonathan_kogan]: top speeds have topped out and con
structure where we built slower today than we

[jonathan_kogan]: did seventy years ago obviously even articulating
rooms law requires detailed knowledge of history knowledge

[jonathan_kogan]: of how things used to be less
obviously if we want to change rooms law

[jonathan_kogan]: if we want to in the physical
world again we will need history too the

[jonathan_kogan]: reason is that behind every f d
a is a thihlamata big word here thaladomid

[jonathan_kogan]: just is behind every tsa there's a
nine eleven and behind every starbansoxoxly is it

[jonathan_kogan]: an en ron regulation is dull but
the incidents that to regulation for anything but

[jonathan_kogan]: dull i'm gonna add this little tibet
in here this is while f t x

[jonathan_kogan]: just crumpled so some's coming this history
is used to defend ancient regulations if you

[jonathan_kogan]: change them people will die as such
to legalize physical innovation you'll need to become

[jonathan_kogan]: a counter historian only when you understand
legitimating history of regulatory agencies better than their

[jonathan_kogan]: proponents do can you build a superior
alternative a new regulatory parade capable of addressing

[jonathan_kogan]: both the abuses of the american regulatory
state and the abuses they claim to prevent

[jonathan_kogan]: history determines morality religions start with history
lessons you might think of these as made

[jonathan_kogan]: up histories but their history is all
the same tales of the distant past fictionalized

[jonathan_kogan]: or not that describe how humans once
behaved and how they should have behaved there's

[jonathan_kogan]: a moral to these stories political doctrines
are based on history lessons to thee how

[jonathan_kogan]: the establishment justifies itself the mechanism for
propagating history lessons is the establishment newspaper wherein

[jonathan_kogan]: most articles aren't really about tour false
but good and bad try it yourself just

[jonathan_kogan]: by glancing at a headline from any
establishment outlet you can instantly apprehend its moral

[jonathan_kogan]: lesson axim is bad our system of
government is good tech founders are bad and

[jonathan_kogan]: so on and if you poke one
level deeper if you ask why any of

[jonathan_kogan]: these things is good or bad you'll
again get a history lesson because why is

[jonathan_kogan]: x is bad well let me educate
you on some history the installation of these

[jonathan_kogan]: moral premises is a zero sum game
there's only room for so many moral lessons

[jonathan_kogan]: in one society because of brains capacity
for moral computation is limited so you get

[jonathan_kogan]: a totally different society if ninety nine
percent of people allocate their limited more memory

[jonathan_kogan]: to principles like hard work good meratocracy
good en vy bad charity good then if

[jonathan_kogan]: ninety nine percent of people have internalized
nostrums like socialism good ability bad law enforcement

[jonathan_kogan]: bad looting good you can try to
imagine a scenario where these two sets of

[jonathan_kogan]: moral values aren't in direct conflict but
empirically those with the first set of moral

[jonathan_kogan]: values will favor and entrepreneral society and
those with the second set of values will

[jonathan_kogan]: not t history is how you develop
compelling media you can make up entirely fictional

[jonathan_kogan]: stories of course but even fiction frequently
has some kind of historical precedent the lord

[jonathan_kogan]: of the rings drew on medieval europe
spegetti westerns pulled from the wild west bond

[jonathan_kogan]: movies were inspired by the cold war
and so on and certainly legitimizing stories for

[jonathan_kogan]: any political order will draw on history
history is the true value of crypto currency

[jonathan_kogan]: bit coin is worth hundreds of billions
of dollars because it's cryptographically verifiable history of

[jonathan_kogan]: who holds what bit coin read the
truth machine for book length treatment of this

[jonathan_kogan]: concept history tells you who's in charge
why did our well say that he who

[jonathan_kogan]: controls the past controls the future and
that he who controls the present controls the

[jonathan_kogan]: past because history text books are written
by the winners they are authored subtly or

[jonathan_kogan]: not to tell a story of great
triumph by the ruling establishment over its past

[jonathan_kogan]: enemies the only history most people in
the us know seventeen seventy six eighteen sixty

[jonathan_kogan]: five nineteen forty five and nineteen sixty
five a potted history of revolutions world wars

[jonathan_kogan]: and activist movements that lead in explicit
to the sunny uplands of greater political equality

[jonathan_kogan]: it's very similar to the history the
soviets taught their children where all the past

[jonathan_kogan]: was interpreted through the lens of class
struggle bringing soviet citizens to the present day

[jonathan_kogan]: where they were inevitably progressing from the
intermediate stage of social socialism towards communism chinese

[jonathan_kogan]: school children learn a similarly selective history
where the real wrongs of european colonialism and

[jonathan_kogan]: japanese are centered and those of my
down played and even any successful start up

[jonathan_kogan]: tells a founding story that sands off
the rough edges in short a history textbook

[jonathan_kogan]: gives you a hero's journey that sell
ups the triumph of its establishment authors against

[jonathan_kogan]: all odds even when a historical treatment
covers ostensible victims like a text books covering

[jonathan_kogan]: the victimization of the proletariat if you
look carefully the ruling class that authors that

[jonathan_kogan]: treatment typically justifies itself as the champion
of those victims this is why one of

[jonathan_kogan]: the first acts of any conquering regime
is to rewrite the text books to tell

[jonathan_kogan]: you who is in charge history determines
your hiring policy why are tech companies being

[jonathan_kogan]: lectured by media corporations on diversity is
it because those media corporations that are twenty

[jonathan_kogan]: to thirty points whiter than tech companies
actually deeply care about this or is it

[jonathan_kogan]: because after the two thousand and nine
era collapse of media revenue media corporation struggled

[jonathan_kogan]: for a business model found that certain
words drove track pick and then doubled down

[jonathan_kogan]: on that boosting their stock price and
bashing their competitors in the process after all

[jonathan_kogan]: if you know a bit more history
you'll know that the new york times company

[jonathan_kogan]: which origin which origin so many of
these journalists is an organization where the controlling

[jonathan_kogan]: oxsoulsburger family literally profited from slavery blocked
women from being publishers excluded gaze the news

[jonathan_kogan]: room for decades ran a succession process
featuring only three sit straight white male cousins

[jonathan_kogan]: and ended up with a publisher who
just happened to be the son of the

[jonathan_kogan]: previous guy suppose you're a founder once
you know this history and once all your

[jonathan_kogan]: friends and employes and investors know it
and once you know that no purposely brave

[jonathan_kogan]: establish media corporation would have ever informed
you of it in quite those words you

[jonathan_kogan]: are outside the matrix you've mentally freed
your organization so long as you aren't running

[jonathan_kogan]: a corporation based on hereditary nepotism where
the current guy running the show inherits the

[jonathan_kogan]: companies from his father's father's father father
you're more diversive and democratic than the owners

[jonathan_kogan]: of the new york times company you
don't need to take lectures from them from

[jonathan_kogan]: anyone in their employ or really from
anyone in their social star which includes all

[jonathan_kogan]: establishments are journalists you now have the
moral authority to hire who you need to

[jonathan_kogan]: hire within the confines of the law
as space ex shopify cracking and others are

[jonathan_kogan]: o doing and that's how a little
knowledge of history restores control over your hiring

[jonathan_kogan]: policy history is how you de bug
our broken society many billions of dollars are

[jonathan_kogan]: spent on history in the engineering world
we don't think about it that way though

[jonathan_kogan]: we call it doing a post mortem
looking over log files maybe running so called

[jonathan_kogan]: time time travel de bugger to get
a reproducable bug once we find it we

[jonathan_kogan]: might want to execute and undo do
it get reverted restored from ack up or

[jonathan_kogan]: return to a previously known good configuration
think about what we're saying on a micro

[jonathan_kogan]: scale knowing the detailed past of the
system allows us to figure out what had

[jonathan_kogan]: gone wrong and being able to partially
rewind the past to progress along a different

[jonathan_kogan]: branch get reverted empowers to fix that
wrongness this doesn't mean throwing away everything and

[jonathan_kogan]: returning to the cave man era of
a blank get repository as per either the

[jonathan_kogan]: cartiated traditional list who wants to turn
back the clock or the anarchoprimitivist who wants

[jonathan_kogan]: to end industrialized civilization but it does
mean reining a bit to then move for

[jonathan_kogan]: along a different path because progress has
both magnitude and direction all these concepts applied

[jonathan_kogan]: to de bugging situations at larger scale
a larger scale than companies like societies or

[jonathan_kogan]: con is you now see why history
is useful founder of a mere start up

[jonathan_kogan]: company can arguably scrape by without it
tactically outsourcing the study of history to those

[jonathan_kogan]: who shape society's laws and morality but
a president of a star society cannot because

[jonathan_kogan]: a new society involves moral social and
legal innovation relative to the old one and

[jonathan_kogan]: that requires a knowledge of history why
history is crucial for start up societies we've

[jonathan_kogan]: wedded the appetite with some specific examples
of why history is useful in general now

[jonathan_kogan]: we will describe why it's specifically useful
for start up sosie tis we begin by

[jonathan_kogan]: introducing an operantially useful set of tools
for thinking about the past from a bottom

[jonathan_kogan]: up and top down perspective history as
written to the ledger as opposed to history

[jonathan_kogan]: as written by the winners we use
these tools to discuss the emergence of a

[jonathan_kogan]: new lethean the network it can tender
for the most powerful force in the world

[jonathan_kogan]: a true peer and compliment to both
god and the state as a mechanism for

[jonathan_kogan]: social organization and then we'll bring it
all together in the lead up to the

[jonathan_kogan]: key concept of this chapter the idea
of the one commandment historically founded socio political

[jonathan_kogan]: innovation that draws citizens to a start
up society just as a tech logically based

[jonathan_kogan]: commercial innovation attracts customers to a start
up company if a start up begins by

[jonathan_kogan]: identifying an economic problem in today's market
and presenting a technologically informed solution that problem

[jonathan_kogan]: in the form of a new company
a star society begins by identifying a moral

[jonathan_kogan]: issue in today's culture and presenting a
historically informed solution to that issue in the

[jonathan_kogan]: form of new society why star societies
aren't solely about technology weight why does a

[jonathan_kogan]: star society have to begin with a
moral issue and why does that solution to

[jonathan_kogan]: that moral issue need to be historically
informed can't it be a tech focus community

[jonathan_kogan]: where people solve problems with equations were
is it in mars and life extension not

[jonathan_kogan]: dusty stories about defunct cities the quick
answer comes from paul johnson at the eleven

[jonathan_kogan]: mark of this talk which is linked
at the network state dot com where he

[jonathan_kogan]: notes that early america's religious colony succeeded
at a higher rate it's four profit colonies

[jonathan_kogan]: because the former had a purpose slightly
longer answer is that in a start of

[jonathan_kogan]: society you're not asking people to buy
a product which is an economic individualistic pitch

[jonathan_kogan]: but to join a community which is
a cultural collective pitch you are arguing that

[jonathan_kogan]: a cut that the culture of your
star of society is better than the surrounding

[jonathan_kogan]: culture implicitly that means there's some moral
deficit in the world that you are fixing

[jonathan_kogan]: history comes into play because you'll need
to write a study of that moral deficit

[jonathan_kogan]: and b draw from the past to
find alternative social arrangements where that moral deficit

[jonathan_kogan]: did not occur tech may be part
of the solution and calculations may well be

[jonathan_kogan]: involved but the moment you write about
any secidal problem in death in depth you'll

[jonathan_kogan]: find yourself writing a history of that
problem for specifics you could skip ahead examples

[jonathan_kogan]: of parallel societies or you could suspend
your disbelief for a little bit keep listening

[jonathan_kogan]: and trust us that this historical moral
ethical angle just might be missing ingredient to

[jonathan_kogan]: build star societies which after all haven't
yet fully taken off in the modern world

[jonathan_kogan]: applied history for for start up societies
here's the outline of this chapter one we

[jonathan_kogan]: start with bottom up history the section
on micro history and macro history bridges the

[jonathan_kogan]: gap between the trajectory of an isolated
reproducible system and the trajectories of millions of

[jonathan_kogan]: interacting human beings because both these small
and large scale trajectories can now be digitally

[jonathan_kogan]: recorded and quantified this is history as
written to the ledger culminating in the crypto

[jonathan_kogan]: history of bit coin two we next
discussed top down history this is history as

[jonathan_kogan]: written by the winners history as conceptualized
by what tyler coan calls the base raiders

[jonathan_kogan]: history that justifies the an order and
proclaims it stable and inevitable it is a

[jonathan_kogan]: theory of political power verse technological truth
three we then talk about the history of

[jonathan_kogan]: power giving names to the forces we
just described by identifying the three candidates for

[jonathan_kogan]: the most powerful force in the world
god state and network m framing things in

[jonathan_kogan]: terms of three prime movers rather than
one allows us to generalize beyond purely god

[jonathan_kogan]: center religions to understand the lethean center
doctrines that implicitly under pain modern society four

[jonathan_kogan]: we apply this to the history of
power struggles with the god state network lens

[jonathan_kogan]: we can understand the blue red and
tech verse media conflict in a different way

[jonathan_kogan]: as a malt side to struggle between
people of god people of the state and

[jonathan_kogan]: people of the network five we go
through how the people of the state have

[jonathan_kogan]: used their power to distort recent and
distant history and how the network is newly

[jonathan_kogan]: rectifying this distortion in quote if the
news is fake magine history six having shown

[jonathan_kogan]: the degree to which history has been
distorted and thereby displaced the implicit historical narrative

[jonathan_kogan]: in which the arc of history bends
to the victory of the u s establishment

[jonathan_kogan]: we discuss several alternative theories of past
and future in our section on fragmentation frontier

[jonathan_kogan]: forth turning and future is our past
these thesises don't describe a clean progressive victory

[jonathan_kogan]: on every access but instead a set
of cycles hairpin turns mirror images and a

[jonathan_kogan]: set of historical trajectories far more complex
than the narrative linear inevitability smuggled in through

[jonathan_kogan]: textbooks and mass media seven we next
turn our attention to left and right which

[jonathan_kogan]: are confusing concepts in a realigning time
in left is the new right is the

[jonathan_kogan]: new left sorry we can't avoid politics
any more of societies aren't purely about technology

[jonathan_kogan]: but please note that for most part
this this section isn't the same old pabulum

[jonathan_kogan]: around current events we do contend that
you need a theory of left and right

[jonathan_kogan]: to the start of society but that
doesn't mean just picking aside why while a

[jonathan_kogan]: political consumer has to pick one of
a few party platforms off a menu a

[jonathan_kogan]: political founder can do something different ideology
construction to inform this will show how left

[jonathan_kogan]: and right have swap sides through history
and how any successful mass movement has both

[jonathan_kogan]: a revolutionary left component and a ruling
right component eight finally all this builds up

[jonathan_kogan]: to the payoff the one commandment using
the terminology we just introduce we can rattle

[jonathan_kogan]: it off in a few paragraphs if
the following is opaque anyway listen to the

[jonathan_kogan]: next chapter and then come back and
re listen to this one if history is

[jonathan_kogan]: not pre determined to bend in one
direction if the current establishment may experienc dramatic

[jonathan_kogan]: disruption in the form of the fragmentation
and forth turning if its power actually arose

[jonathan_kogan]: from the expanding frontier rather than the
expanding franchise if history is somehow running and

[jonathan_kogan]: reverse as per our future is our
past thesis if the revolutionary and ruling classes

[jonathan_kogan]: are in fact switching sides and in
the new case that is the network is

[jonathan_kogan]: indeed rising above the state and if
the internal american conflicts can be seen not

[jonathan_kogan]: only as policy disputes but as holy
wars these clashes and then the assumption of

[jonathan_kogan]: the base raiders that all will proceed
as it will as it always has is

[jonathan_kogan]: quite incorrect but rather than admit this
incorrectness they'll attempt to use political power to

[jonathan_kogan]: suppress technological truth the founders counter is
crypto history and the start of society we

[jonathan_kogan]: have now we now have a history
no establishment can easily corrupt the cryptographically verifiable

[jonathan_kogan]: hit story pioneered by bit coin and
extended via crypto oracles we also have a

[jonathan_kogan]: theory of historical feasibility history as a
trajectory rather than in inevitability the idea the

[jonathan_kogan]: desirable future will only occur if you
put in individual effort but what exactly is

[jonathan_kogan]: the nature of that desirable future after
all many groups differ with the old order

[jonathan_kogan]: but also with each other so a
blanket solution won't work and could well be

[jonathan_kogan]: resisted that's where the one commandment comes
in as context the modern person is often

[jonathan_kogan]: morally reticent but politically evangelistic they hesitate
to talk about what is moral or immoral

[jonathan_kogan]: because it's not their place to say
what's right yet when it comes to politics

[jonathan_kogan]: this diffidence is frequently replaced by overbearing
confidence in how others must live coupled with

[jonathan_kogan]: an enthusiasm for enforcing their beliefs at
gun point if not ser in between the

[jonathan_kogan]: zero and infinity in between is chewing
moral discussion entirely and imposing a full blown

[jonathan_kogan]: political doctrine in this final section we
propose a one a one command starting a

[jonathan_kogan]: new society with its own moral code
based on your study of history and recruit

[jonathan_kogan]: people that agree with you to populate
it we're not saying you need to come

[jonathan_kogan]: up with your own new ten commandment
mind you but you do need one commandment

[jonathan_kogan]: to establish the differentiation the difedifferentiation of
a new star society concrete examples of possible

[jonathan_kogan]: one commandments include twenty four seven internet
bad which leads to a digital sabbath society

[jonathan_kogan]: or carbis bad which leads to a
quito coacher society or traditional christianity good which

[jonathan_kogan]: leads to a benedict option society or
life extension good which leads to a post

[jonathan_kogan]: a society you might think these one
commandment sound either trivial or unrealistically ambitious but

[jonathan_kogan]: in that respect they're similar to tech
the pitch of one hundred and forty characters

[jonathan_kogan]: sounded trivial and the pit a re
usable rockets seemed unrealistic but those resulted in

[jonathan_kogan]: twitter and space x respectively the one
commandment is also similar to tech in another

[jonathan_kogan]: respect it focuses a star of society
on a single moral innovation just like a

[jonathan_kogan]: tech company is about a focus technitechneconomic
innov ship that is as we will see

[jonathan_kogan]: each one commandment based star of society
is premised on de constructing the establishment history

[jonathan_kogan]: in one specific area erecting a replacement
narrative in its place with a new one

[jonathan_kogan]: commandment then proving the socio economic value
of that one commandment by using it to

[jonathan_kogan]: attract subscribers citizens for example if you
can attract one hundred subscribers to your quito

[jonathan_kogan]: coacher society through deeply research historical studies
on the obesity epidemic and then show that

[jonathan_kogan]: they've lost significant weight as a com
sequence you've proven the establishment deeply wrong in

[jonathan_kogan]: a key area that'll ever drive them
to reform or not to reform in which

[jonathan_kogan]: case you attract more citizens a key
point is that we can apply all the

[jonathan_kogan]: techniques of stars companies to start societies
financing attracting subscribers calculating turn doing customers support

[jonathan_kogan]: there's a play book for all of
that it's just society as a service the

[jonathan_kogan]: new sess in parallel other stars societies
are likewise critiquing by building draining citizens away

[jonathan_kogan]: from the establishment with their own historically
in form one commandment and thereby driving change

[jonathan_kogan]: on other dimensions finally different successful changes
can be copied and merged together such that

[jonathan_kogan]: the second generation of starved society starts
differentiating from the establishment by two three or

[jonathan_kogan]: commandments this is a vision for peaceful
paralyzed paparallelized like parallel historically driven reform of

[jonathan_kogan]: a broken society okay i know those
last few paragraphs some heavy sledding but come

[jonathan_kogan]: back and re listen to them after
going through the next chapter the main point

[jonathan_kogan]: of our little preview here was to
make the case that history is an applied

[jonathan_kogan]: subject and that you can't start a
new society without it without a genuine moral

[jonathan_kogan]: critique of the establishment without an ideological
root network supported by history your new society

[jonathan_kogan]: is at best a fancy starbuck's line
a gated community that differs only in its

[jonathan_kogan]: amenities a snack to be eaten by
the establishment at its leisure a solis nullity

[jonathan_kogan]: with no direction save consumerism m but
with such critique but with such a critique

[jonathan_kogan]: with the understanding that the establishment is
morally wanting with a focused articulation of how

[jonathan_kogan]: exactly it falls short with a one
commandment that others can choose to foll oh

[jonathan_kogan]: and with a vision of the historical
past that underpends your new start of society

[jonathan_kogan]: much as a vision of the technological
future underpends a new star company you are

[jonathan_kogan]: well on your way you might even
start to see a historical white paper floating

[jonathan_kogan]: in front of you the scholarly critique
that draws your first one hundred subscribers the
