That said, I do think so called sovereign citizens serve a useful purpose. They give Scientologists somebody to laugh at.

Peter Thiel discussing "The Myth Of Diversity" with particular emphasis on universities. If it wasn't pointed out that it is decades old, you wouldn't know it.
Heather McDonald describes how hard Thiel nailed it in the current university system. It's going to be with us for a long time.

What do you make of the host? I have tried to listen to Levin on the radio at night but I have to admit I didn't last very long. Had to turn him off.

EDIT: so far so good with Heather MacDonald, though.
I'd forgotten about that GradeAUnderA guy! It is from him that I learned to use J,K,L on the keyboard to pause videos on youtube and jump forward and back.

What do you mean "generational tech gap?"

I think they figured it out pretty quickly for how non-intuitive rotary phones are. The first way they tried actually made a lot of sense, but looked :o because I already know how to use one .
