Normally when I find a video or essay worth commenting on, I comment on it. I won’t do that this time. Jonathan Pageau has delivered the most insightful and succinct 22 minutes I have seen in a long time. He is analyzing the speech given by Tim Cook of Apple at the ADL in December 2018. If you are what used to pass for human, you will gag uncontrollably.
C.S. Lewis noted that we have already lived through the Abolition of Man. After man’s conquest of nature, all that was left was for some men to conquest other men – with none of them being recognizable as human beings thereafter:
They are not men at all. Stepping outside the Tao, they have stepped into the void. Nor are their subjects necessarily unhappy men. They are not men at all: they are artefacts. Man’s final conquest has proved to be the abolition of Man.
Just watch the video.
