Rick and Gus crack some cold ones and talk about the Blade Runner sequel. Can man remain human in an age of dehumanization? Are we doomed to slow degradation as our products replace us? Can I get uuuuuuuhhh one toaster gf?
Rick, Shaun, and (later) Alex get together to talk about Jordan Peterson, Ideology, Atomwaffen Division, Fr Seraphim Rose, violence, and Nihilism.
“There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, arts, civilizations – these are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat. But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub and exploit – immortal horrors or everlasting splendors. This does not mean that we are to be perpetually solemn. We must play. But our merriment must be of that kind (and it is, in fact, the merriest kind) which exists between people who have, from the outset, taken each other seriously – no flippancy, no superiority, no presumption.”
– CS Lewis
The line between seriousness and satire is 100% blurred in this one.
