#11 Social Justice Worshippers

Join us as we explore the odd parallels between the postmodern "social justice" beliefs system and religion. We visit economics and financial markets, black swans, epistemology, facts and "alternative facts", how people form their beliefs, and sink our teeth into the difference between faith and love. We discuss Popper, Taleb, Wittgenstein, Tertullian, and Sartre, plus detour into language, antisemitism, and the difference between staying true to your beliefs and wanting to be proven wrong.

Holy Madness - The Show
The Holy Madness sifts through the mad world seeking wisdom. We tackle far-ranging heavy subjects with a light touch and “pharismanic” flair.

Alas, the sun has set on the show, and we are not making new episodes. Fans came for the provocative conversation, stayed for the contrarian conclusions, and enjoyed loads of holy madness in-between. And we loved the community that developed around the show.

Whether you're listening again, or discovering the show for the first time: be well and be blessed.

Everything is fascinating. Everything is uncertain. Everything is wearisome.
I'm done with "quiet desperation," I'll talk desperation with everyone.
Sift through the madness, cut through the BS, get a little freer, repeat.
For the love of God. There's nothing else. This is the whole Adam.

Meir-Simchah co-hosted Holy Madness - The Show with the great Tzvi Zucker (http://tzvizucker.me/, @tzvizucker).
