Skinner Layne - Embracing Collapse: Transforming Tragedy into Meaningfulness

My guest today is Skinner Layne. Skinner is the founder of Exosphere, a learning a problem-solving community and startup laboratory. We talk about how collapse is woven into the DNA of our system, how those who grew up in the modern west are equivalent to trust fund babies, why marxism dies from cancer, fascism dies from heart attack and consumerism dies from diabetes, how Apple is the perfection of fascist production and marxist aesthetics, why preserving the status quo is unacceptable, how collapse is more like falling down a hill than falling off a cliff...and why it may be a good idea to head down the hill preemptively, before you are pushed.  Outro music by Danny J --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/emerge/support
