E133. Jonathan Haidt Thinks We Are Choking To Death On Moralism Walk-Ins Welcome with Bridget Phetasy

    • Society & Culture

Jonathan Haidt (The Coddling of the American Mind , The Righteous Mind ) is a social psychologist who believes that we're currently suffering from Wisdom Deprivation Disorder. He and Bridget analyze how the "like" and "retweet" functions changed the face of social media - and eventually the mainstream media, why wokeness makes it impossible to do anything, the costs of speaking up with common sense, the warping of our entire information ecosystem, and why so many businesses are really leaving Silicon Valley. They discuss the difference between resilience and anti-fragility, the victimhood economy, why everyone should read the Stoics before they get on Twitter, the skyrocketing rates of depression and anxiety in Gen Z, what the loss of unsupervised free play does to children, why this is an incredibly interesting time to be a social scientist, and Jonathan's plan to help people flourish in an age of anxiety.
