We spend a lot of time memorizing people and events and dates in school, even some big ideas, but we rarely learn about what those things actually mean to us — and that context, that perspective, can be quite meaningful and useful.
So we start today’s episode with a look at the history of objectivism in Western society and how the ideological homogeneity seen in many societies ends up creating these illusions of absolute truth, illusions ultimately used to secure power and control people, that still permeate through the collective unconscious to this day.
Then we’ll look at how absolute objectivism was eroded by systems of belief that favored subjectivity, and how the conflict between the two presents itself both in modern culture and inside our heads.
