    Marine and the Hippie 2300307- Tuberculosis Mary 2023

    Marine and the Hippie 2300307- Tuberculosis Mary 2023

    In this dialogue, we discuss a recent story about a woman who has tuburculosis and refuses treatment for her disease. She has been dragged into court 16 times because she is knowingly spreading the disease, a treatable but deadly disease in her community. The discussion turns to the tension between civil liberties and civic duty. At what point does one's personal freedom end? At what point does a society have an obligation to lock a threat to public wealth, welfare and order away to prevent them from harming the community? At what point does a person who flouts any sense of civic duty lose their liberty? All these questions are raised in this discussion about modern society, where we pay attention only to liberty and do not seem to be interested in performing our duty to others around us.

    Marine and the Hippie 230221- Subscriptions

    Marine and the Hippie 230221- Subscriptions

    In this dialogue, we discuss subscriptions, and specifically the economic model of people paying exorbitant amounts of money for services, without actually owning anything.  While this dialogue focuses on subscriptions for online services and streaming services, it can also extend to things like rent, where some wealthy property owner can charge you to live in a domicile that you do not own.  And the model itself approximates an extortion racket:  When you buy in, the provider of the "service" feels free to cause you problems at cheaper levels and then offers to solve the problem if you pay them more money.  There is significant pushback in the society to withdrawing from that economic model by people who themselves have bought in, because your participation in the society where everyone is being taken advantage of is called into question through withdrawal:  People stigmatize homelessness, and while homelessness can be hard, it can also be kind of rewarding simply by you not passing your wealth off to the property owning class.

    Marine and the Hippie 230207- The Truck Nuts Dialogue

    Marine and the Hippie 230207- The Truck Nuts Dialogue

    In this dialogue, we discuss the inability of Americans to laugh at themselves.  We take a lot of people to task, but focus primarily on the ridiculousness around the anti-trans/ anti-gay Right, who will call different lifestyles and identities aberrant and repulsive, and still listen to music about gay men finding partners in public showers and hanging bronzed testicles on the back of their trucks.  We further discuss implications for this refusal to simply live and let live and an utter contempt for a civic mindedness which puts the good of the nation ahead of one's own personal likes or dislikes, and suggest that it will lead to the rise of a new serfdom or slavery in the US.

    Marine and the Hippie 230126 S03E05- Slavery and AI Chatbot

    Marine and the Hippie 230126 S03E05- Slavery and AI Chatbot

    In this dialogue, we discuss the implication of the development of AI technology.  On the one hand, AI technology can theoretically save labor and allow people to devote more time and energy to other things in their lives.  On the other hand, it will allow employers to pocket more profit through the cutting of labor costs.  Furthermore, it opens up more problems for teachers who are trying to encourage their students to learn how to write:  Students can spend money to buy papers composed by the AI chatbots, and while this is technically not copying, given that AI Chatbot is written in the student's own voice, it still does not mean that the student actually did any of the work on the project.  AI technology is here to stay, and so now we need to learn how to live in the society where it is constantly present.

    Marine and the Hippie 230112 S03E04- Do we have morality?

    Marine and the Hippie 230112 S03E04- Do we have morality?

    In this dialogue, we discuss whether or not we have morality.  Morality is a system of moral rules, which can either come from some external source, or from our own rules about how we want to live in the world.  While the question about the existence of morality is controversial, if we do have morality, does that create an ethical obligation for us?  Do we owe it to our society to act morally, and to create a better world than the one we inherited?  The question remains open even after the discussion.

    Marine and the Hippie 221016 S03E02- Dumb and Dumber-est-er-est

    Marine and the Hippie 221016 S03E02- Dumb and Dumber-est-er-est

    In this dialogue, the failure of post modern education, in the US specifically, but across the world more generally, to promote excellence, or even standards in education.  The notion that all deserve education is both a good and bad thing.  On the one hand, universal education has led to lifting millions out of superstition and ignorance, and has allowed them to advance in technology, art, music and science.  On the other hand, it has created a one-size-fits-all model which is simply inappropriate for a number of people, especially those whose aptitudes lie in other directions, and the insistence that these individuals remain in the same educational system as those who actually want to learn and have the ability to excel in class tends to draw resources from the students who care enough and have the ability to learn.  But the issue is not "not education" or "private home school" but taking the priorities of industry and putting them on the back burner to restore a sense of education as a dialogue between teacher and student.
