Max Borders On Our Possible Future The Michael Ostrolenk Show

    • Health & Fitness

Welcome to “The Emergent Human where we explore Optimizing Health, Embodied Spirituality and Post Conventional Living. I am Michael Ostrolenk, a therapist, coach and educator and I am your host.

I would like to welcome back Max Borders, a Futurist, author, and speaker who lives in Austin, TX. His books include “After Collapse: The End of America and the Rebirth of Her Ideals “, “ The Social Singularity: How decentralization will allow us to transcend politics, create global prosperity, and avoid the robot apocalypse” and “The Decentralist: Mission, Morality, and Meaning in the Age of Crypto”

1:33 Introduction / What is a Futurist, and what are the two primary threads of Futurism?
10:30 How did this approach to life develop for you, what were your influences?
15:29 Can you walk us through some of the challenges you feel we’re facing, and how these can be understood as opportunities?
21:12 Michael and Max get into a discussion about the balance between local power and the risk of it being easily captured.
27:19 Max discusses examples of how technology can rapidly shift power, through examples like Uber and Bitcoin.
40:42 Michael invites Max to share about the breadth of what he’s written about and also how viewers can connect more with his work if they’re interested in learning more about it. Max also shares some of what he’s learned from Vedic traditions, including the conviction that we should not look to derive our morality from politics.

We will close out today’s show with one of my favorite singer/song writers Stuart Davis and his song “Nothing in Between”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdRqCc3LfDI
