    Palladium Podcast 57: The Moral Logic of Industrial Progress

    Palladium Podcast 57: The Moral Logic of Industrial Progress

    Wolf Tivy and Ash Milton discuss the moral logic that drives industrial progress. The industrial revolution has been left halted across its most important domains. The 20th century's major advances were never fully developed. Returning to the path of industrial progress isn't just a policy matter. Instead, we need to re-develop the complex ecosystem of mastery, tacit knowledge, and material practice that can bring about our society's advancement.

    Palladium Podcast 56: Cults Move Civilization

    Palladium Podcast 56: Cults Move Civilization

    Wolf Tivy and Ash Milton discuss cults as society's real foundation. Cults channel and condition the highest desires of human consciousness. The stories they tell about the world give meaning to every other aspect of our lives. Their authority can make demands for people to act in ways that no other kind of organization can dream of. Sometimes, they inspire members to sacrifice their lives. Cults and cultic activity are not a luxury that societies indulge when all other needs are met. They are the first-movers, setting the stage for everything else that follows.

    Palladium Podcast 55: Liberalism Is the Liberality of Power

    Palladium Podcast 55: Liberalism Is the Liberality of Power

    Wolf Tivy and Ash Milton discuss the Qing-era Chinese thinker Yan Fu and how to understand liberalism as a political project. Political systems exist downstream of a governing class that tries to create a certain kind of society. The liberal thought of John Stuart Mill and Adam Smith proposed increasingly broad participation in political and economic power. But its mission was not permanent rebellion. Instead, applying the virtue of liberality to power would create a strong society and a dynamic state.

    Palladium Podcast 54: Recuperating the GameStop Rebellion

    Palladium Podcast 54: Recuperating the GameStop Rebellion

    Wolf Tivy and Ash Milton discuss the GameStop rebellion and why such outbursts almost always fail to bring about the changes they want. The reality is that power exists as a set of deals, and only those able to coordinate on the same level have the potential to rewrite them. Most movements end up becoming recuperated instead—but this presents its own set of opportunities.

    Palladium Podcast 53: The First Planet We're Terraforming Is Earth

    Palladium Podcast 53: The First Planet We're Terraforming Is Earth

    Wolf Tivy and Ash Milton discuss the ultimate impact of human beings on Earth, and why neither green energy tweaks nor radical degrowth and return to nature are solutions. Instead, we need to envision what the Earth could be if we used our powers properly. We also need to reconcile our ethics of respect towards non-human parts of the world's ecosystem, and our disruptive role within it.
