Culture & Ideology Are Not Your Friends

There are a number of shorter Terence McKenna clips condensing this theme but I don't think there's any substitution for listening to one of Terence's finest think pieces on the subject of culture and ideology, which just like nationalism, flag waving and patriotism are the most urgently needed legacies of the nation state era that we need to dispense with

I say it again. People who wave flags (metaphorically or literally) are dangerously misinformed. Those ideas belong to the 18th century and are part of the problem instead of a global solution we most urgently need.
