For the first, last, and only time, we talk about Elon Musk. (Wrong. Sad.)
Most of this episode is a response to Aeon‘s recent piece, “Whitey on Mars.” Whatever, you’ll hear when you hear. What’s important right now is that I tell you this: the word musketeer comes from musket. Musketeers were soldiers who carried muskets. Well what the fuck, how come the Three Musketeers just used swords? My whole life (and yours by extension) is a lie.
- Thanks, Adam of Future Left Podcast, for reminding us that PBS NewsHour exists.
- “Elon Musk thinks unions are bad for Tesla”
- I couldn’t find a free and open access link to that philosophy paper I was talking about, Alastair Norcross’s “The Scalar Approach to Utilitarianism.” But that’s okay, because there is no right or wrong.
