I’ve received many thoughtful and heartfelt comments on the war in Ukraine from my listeners. In this episode, I share their insights and add a few of my own.

  • 0:42 – How the stages of consciousness are arising “simultaneously”.
  • 5:34 – The shocking strangeness of premodernity and its challenge to modern culture.
  • 15:13 – “The world, even Russians, seem to be more unified and sensitized to the abhorrence of war.”
  • 17:20 – “Why do I care more about people who look and think like me?” The challenge of moral growth.
