In this two-part episode, Scott is joined in the Palmerston North studio by Michael Salmon.
Michael is a Palmerston North based student of Genetics and Microbiology with a military background in paramedicine and environmental health. His focus is on working against malaria and other globally significant infectious diseases. Michael also performed as an actor in Scott's recent theatre production of The Nether.
The establishment paralysis of Market Theology
Market Theology appears to be the most anti-moral system one can imagine, but in fact it is a moral system and is defended as a moral system. Endlessly self-maximising atomic selves (whether individuals or corporations) are believed to necessitate the best of possible worlds by an invisible hand of competition. Only money costs compute to the system. Life costs do not compute, and "economic growth" is consistent with predictably destroying all planetary life-support systems.
Together, Scott and Michael discuss in broad detail genetic-meme-social programming in the context of the biological correlative of the self-multiplying money-sequence mechanism (testable against every degenerate trend):
Rationality = Self-Maximizing Choice
= Always More Money-Value for Self is Good
= Self-Multiplying Sequences of Ever More Money to the Top Under 1%
= the Ruling Growth System with No Committed Life Functions
= All Else is Disposable Means to this Multiplying Pathogenic Growth
