Freud, speaking powerfully, the AI which nearly destroyed humanity, the Fourth Turning +much more!
A weekly resource & link roundup. Other highlights: A stranger-than-fiction kidnapping, 9 tips to live better, dying animals, the health of the crypto market + more…
As friend James Rutter had a personal experience which relates, this is the perfect lead-in image / meme for today’s edition:
[James]: “I just took my son to get a doughnut. While we were there I watched a father, mother, and son all face down on their phones, almost the entire time, while their little daughter (looked about 5) was trying to get their attention. None of them would pull themselves away from their phones to give their attention to her.
“Parents, I can guarantee you, if you don’t give your kids attention then they will seek it from someone else, and I can pretty much promise you that you won’t like who they seek it from. It’ll be your fault too, not theirs. It’s YOUR job to raise your child, to love your child, and to be present with your child… no one else’s.
“Take your vocation as a parent seriously. Our world has enough screwed up children in the last couple generations. Help break the cycle. Do better.”
