Right down the middle.

I love JHK’s writing. The future may not be rosy, but better to consider it now while we can improve our position. Our step wise decline may not arrive soon or be an empty gas pump. But our system is corrupt and our currency is dangerously stretched.
Timing future events is impossible but the trends are easy to read. Keep digging James.

I sure miss the Duncan Crary days. This guest and Jim are being chickenshit. They should come out and say they didn’t think Dr Ford was assaulted if that’s what they think. Then we’ll know what they are really saying. Very disappointing, but clarifying. Know the enemy.

It was interesting once

This podcast was interesting once. I found Mr. Kunstler's views on the enviroment, urban sprawl, peak oil, and alternative views (more concise) on the economy very, very interesting. I used to feel like I was learning something relevant from his talks and books (not his fiction - pretty bad sci-fi). But lately he seems to go on and on about identity politics and seems to think he is being Swiftian in his opinions that those who are proponents of identity poltics should be killed. He sounds very alt-right which I know he isn't. But I think he is doing Trump supports and alt-right proponents a servive, empowering them by his opinions. He sounds like a crotchety old man complaining. This disappoints me because he is smarter than that. I wish he were more empathetic.
