It’s a Friday so we usually do an interview show or a thought of the walk. What is a thought of the walk — simply a short episode where we dive into a single concept. How do I pick the topic? I go for walks with my dogs and shut off all media. While out and about, something that has been niggling on my brain often comes clear, then I share it with you.

This week, I have been thinking about punitive and restorative justice and will share my thoughts on that with you later in the show.

Today, I will share with you an alternative perspective to the Parler hullabaloo. One separated from a political party. Both Republicans and Democrats have this wrong — and yet Big Tech has showed that, once again, absolute power corrupts absolutely. We will also talk about making some changes in how we operate.

Happy Friday everyone! Today I wanted to take a deeper look at building community and foundational principles that I think are important to keep in mind. This is the start of this topic and I hope to hear from you if you think things can be combined or if something is missing, keeping in mind that the more rules you put in place, the easier it is for a community to transform from happy and functional to bureaucratic and abusive.

Monday’s show was three hours and it was so dark at times that I thought a live feedback show would be a good idea. The challenge being that some of you have not listened to Monday’s show yet because it is so long. But enough of you have that I have a set of things to talk about AND I wanted to talk about real community and what it means – because our prosperous US Society has done a pretty good job of changing the perception of how community works both through social networks and also government imposed, top-down, corporatized systems.

Vin Armani joins me for today’s episode to discuss the coming dim age – and I think he is right about this. We discuss why he thinks one is coming with a particular focus on learning from past historical stories. We also talk about what it means for day to day life and, at the very end, what you should put in place to navigate this change. Because it is important to do what you can to protect both for your short term comfort and to set a foundation for your children’s future.
