Handwaving Freakoutery has a post up about how the methods society uses to indoctrinate itself are changing. The biggest prediction in there is that the higher education universe is about to collapse. That might not be a bad thing.

That post links a couple of other stories. One story at The Atlantic dissects an interviewer's technique for  distorting the guests views. 


The other talks about the age old war between the red ants and the black ants.

P.S. The last linked story mentions the Nash Equilibrium, which rings a bell, so I check. It is named for John Forbes Nash Jr., a famous mathematician. He was portrayed by Russell Crowe in the movie A Beautiful Mind a few years ago.

In the US from 2000 to 2018 Bachelor’s degrees jumped from 29.8 million to 48.2 million.
Masters 10.4m to 21.0m, professional degrees 2.6m to 3.2m, and PhDs 2.0m to 4.5m.
How many get to say, “Do you want fries with that.”

Any journalist who starts every response with, "So, what you're saying is, . . ." is a troll with an agenda, not a journalist. As Peterson says "That’s because you’re not listening, you’re just projecting." Scorch!
