Rutger Bregman: for Gillie and Andrew
#1
"Humankind: Good or evil? Rutger Bregman joins Andrew Yang on Yang Speaks."

An interview of Rutger Bregman by Andrew Yang. I am particularly curious ias to how this impacts your thinking, Mr. Gillie.

an hour and 20 minutes, but quite interesting, and you can up the play speed if you'd like the quick version

I hear you. It's hard for me to sit through 15 minutes. But this moved along. Theirs is a line of reasoning gaining momentum. Should you endeavor, you can always up the tape speed.

Here is a 1 minute 32 second teaser on Bregman. It's a response from Tucker Carlson after losing his cool with Bregman.

This is the interview that upset the apple cart. 8 minutes.

Start out by watching the 1 minute 32 second teaser and then the 8 minute video. Then you can decide if the hour plus is worth starting, and along the way decide how much to watch.

Bregman has good points about corruption and about biased news channels limiting what their employees can say. But taxing the wealthy at high rates is unlikely to ever succeed, and if it did succeed it would just cut out the corrupt middle man and give the loot straight to the corrupt politicians.

The only solution, if there is one, is to starve the government and force the politicians to prioritize what they fund. With central banking, of course, that can never happen. It funds the corrupt government even as it bails out the corporate malinvestment that far exceeds total tax revenue and has done so for at least the last two decades.
